The objectives of these project are:

– to gain a quantitative understanding of how chemical and environmental characteristics interact to control long-term time trends of POP/PBT-like substances in various environmental compartments.

– to test the ability of current dynamic multimedia models to accurately reproduce the observed long term time trends of POP/PBT-like substances in the physical environment and in biological samples.
