The Effects of Climate Change on Contaminant Pathways
This chapter considers how the changes described in the previous chapters will affect specific groups of contaminants – heavy metals, radionuclides, organochlorine compounds (OCs), and hydrocarbons. For each group, the significance of the recent shift to high Arctic Oscillation (AO) index will be discussed and then consideration will be given to the more general, long-term changes thought likely.
