Deposition of Lindane in Denmark

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The deposition of alpha- and gamma-HCH (Lindane) was measured at four different stations in 1990-1992. gamma-HCH was found in peak concentrations of 27-122 ng/l in spring and early summer, while the mean concentrations from the rest of the year were about 7 ng/l. The levels of alpha-HCH were about 2 ng/l without any detectable seasonal variation. The deposited amounts of alpha- and gamma-HCH are probably caused by long-range transport from European countries south and west of Denmark.
