Over the last few years, the International Joint Commission has been supporting development of a PC based transfer model, derived from the HYSPLIT model created at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), to determine, in a cost effective way, the extent of deposition of selected persistent toxic substances to the Great Lakes from U.S. and Canadian sources and source regions. Outputs for dioxin and atrazine will be described, quantifying the percentage of emissions of these substances from specific point and county level sources which would be deposited in Lake Superior. For the sake of brevity, these data are presented as an example of determinations available for all the other Great Lakes. The impact of specific sources and source categories will be considered. The authors believe this technology will prove useful as a tool in developing a strategy for further control of these sources.
