Environmental Trends Monitoring of flame retardants and pesticides in the Canadian High Arctic via Ice and Snow

A seven meter deep snow pit covering chemical deposition from 1995 to 2007 was dug near the top of the Devon Ice Cap in Nunavut, Canada. Snow and ice samples were taken vertically along the face of the pit. Later, the samples were extracted and analyzed for a number of brominated flame retardants and current use pesticides. The results are presented in the two journal articles: Meyer et al. (2012) and Zhang et al. (2013).
