Selected 'volatile' chlorinated hydrocarbons were quantified in more than 250 ambient air samples from 28 U.S. cities representing 10 states. Examination of the data reveals that their occurrence in the atmosphere may be regarded as either ubiquitous or site specific. Some of the representative ubiquitous halogenated compounds are methylene chloride, chloroform, carbon tetrachloride, 1,1-dichloroethane, 1,2-dichloroethane, trichloroethylene, chlorobenzene, tetrachloroethylene, dichlorobenzene isomers, and methyl chloroform.
