Temporal Variations in POP Levels

A critical component of the assessment of POPs in the Arctic is knowledge of the temporal trends of these chemicals in the abiotic and biotic environment. The relationship between contaminant input into the Arctic and the levels and effects seen in wildlife and humans is ultimately tied to the use and restriction of these chemicals and any remedial action that is taken.
