Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Organophosphorus Pesticides in Seawater from Saemangeum Area Li, Dong-Hao; Hong, Sang-Hee; Shim, Won-Joon; Park, Jun-Kun; Kim, Eun-Soo;
Organophosphorus pesticides (OPs) were analyzed in surface water samples from the Saemangeum environment. IBP was the most abundant among 10 OPs analyzed, and accounted fur over 95% of total amount of OPs. Concentrations of IBP measured in Mangyeong River water and surface seawater ranged from 670 to 1100ng/l and from 45 to 1000 ng/l, respectively. In general, a decreasing trend of OP concentrations towards open sea was observed. The concentrations of IBP and salinity demonstrated a strong correlation . This indicates that IBP showed conservative behavior in the study area, and seawater dilution is a major factor affecting distribution and variation of OPs in the Sammgem environment.
