Abstract [en]

Semi permeable membrane devices (SPMDs) are passive integrative samplers used for measurement of vapor phase liphophilic compounds such as POPs. SPMDs were deployed in Lithuanian city to investigate spatial variations and specific contamination of PAHs in the vapor phase. Samples were taken in four different areas during autumn and winter. The samples were fractioned by GPC and analyzed using GC/MS. This study was focused on 24 PAHs. Fractions between different compounds were investigated as specific air pollution indicators. Indicators of traffic and combustion contribution were suggested. Therefore, results showed, that benzo(a)pyrene concentration may not indicate the gas phase pollution with other PAHs
