Environment Canada, National Water Research Institute, Aquatic Ecosystem Protection, Research Branch, 867 Lakeshore Road, Burlington, Ontario, Canada, L7R 4A6
Environ Sci Technol 40:6405-10. 2006..01 ng/L. This method was applied to Lake Superior samples which produced good agreement for C6-C9 PFCAs between regular analysis (GC-MS) and the XAD-7 followed by GC-MS analysis...
- Distribution of haloacetic acids in the water columns of the Laurentian Great Lakes and Lake MalawiBrian F Scott
National Water Research Institute, Environment Canada, Burlington, Ontario
Environ Sci Technol 36:1893-8. 2002..Generally, high HAA levels paralleled the degree of industrial activity in the adjacent waters...
- Comparison of haloacetic acids in the environment of the Northern and Southern HemispheresB F Scott
National Water Research Institute, Environment Canada, Burlington, Ontario, Canada
Environ Sci Technol 39:8664-70. 2005..The results indicate that concentrations of HAAs are greatest in the industrialized Northern Hemisphere but there are significant amounts of these compounds in the less industrialized Southern Hemisphere...
- Poly and perfluorinated carboxylates in North American precipitationBrian F Scott
Aquatic Ecosystem Protection Research Division, Environment Canada, 867 Lakeshore Road, Burlington, Ontario, Canada
Environ Sci Technol 40:7167-74. 2006..S. sites indicate highly populated urban areas in the New York to Washington corridor as the main sources of PFOA, although low PFOA levels associated with air masses coming off the Atlantic Ocean imply multiple sources...
