This report describes the first measurements of the net atmospheric deposition of PCBs to the ice cover of a body of water. The net deposition of PCBs includes the wet, dry, and vapor deposition, less any evaporation. The measurements were made on ice cores collected from the frozen surface of Lake Huron in the ice seasons of 1978 and 1979. Intrusions of lake water into the accumulated deposition layer of ice and snow were not encountered in these studies. Such intrusions, however, have complicated other attempts to use this method. Possible reasons for not encountering them in this study are discussed. (Copyright (c) International Assoc. Great Lakes Res. 1983.)
