Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) concentrations in the marine Arctic environment collected between 26-Aug-2019 to 28-Aug-2019
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01633

Summary

Abstract:
Samples of snow, sea ice, seawater (0.5 m and 5 m depths) and meltponds were collected from two ice-covered stations located in the Barents Sea (81 N), during the "Nansen Legacy Q3" summer cruise of the Norwegian research vessel Kronprins Haakon on 26-28 August 2019. Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) concentrations, salinity and stable oxygen isotopes were measured in all samples to determine sources and environmental fate of PFAS during late summer.
