Abstract
Hydrophobic organic xenobiotics such as polychlorinated dibenzodioxins and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons have strong tendencies to sorb on environmental surfaces. The paper summarizes a workshop in which scientists and modelers assembled to discuss nonbiological processes that affect sorption to soil or sediment surfaces and on atmospheric particles. The 20 scientists discussed a variety of topics with a major emphasis on the fate of chlorinated dioxins. The topics include transformation processes, mobility of organic pollutants, fate of organics, and evaluative fate models. (Copyright (c) 1987 American Chemical Society.)
