The Role of Dissolved Organic Matter in Arctic Surface Waters in the Photolysis of Hexachlorobenzene and Lindane

Terrestrially derived dissolved organic matter (DOM) can impact the fate of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) that are transported to the Arctic via global distillation. Interactions between DOM and POPs through hydrophobic binding processes may influence their photofate in arctic surface waters....
