Abstract
Atmospheric bulk samples were collected monthly, for one year, from urban, suburban, and rural sites located in the coastal areas of Korea, for the assessment of depositional fluxes and seasonal variations in atmospheric concentrations of PBDEs. Twenty individual PBDE congeners were found in atmospheric samples, and their depositional fluxes varied from 10.1 to 89.0 mu g/m(2)/year. The highest depositional fluxes were found in two urbanized areas, with a strong urban-rural gradient. The relationship between PBDE and particulate depositional fluxes showed significant correlation for all locations, which suggested the association of PBDEs to particulate phase. Deca-BDE (BDE 209) was the predominant congener (> 93%) in all deposition samples, which is consistent with a high consumption of deca-BDE for the flame-retardant market in Korea. Seasonal variability was observed in PBDE concentrations for the two urban sites, whereas no seasonal trend was found for either the suburban or the rural location. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
