Study of Short- and Medium-Chain Chlorinated Paraffins in Sediments of the Urbanized Coastal Zones in South China and Japan
This study aimed to determine the current levels and spatial distribution off the important coastal zones in East Asia, to assess the magnitude of sediment contamination through a worldwide comparison, to reveal the impacts of urbanization and industrialization on the coastal environment, and to compare the temporal trends of CP contamination between China and Japan. This study also examined the effectiveness of emission controls by a comparison study under the different regulatory situations in China and Japan.
