This study investigated the 16 priority PAH concentrations and emission sources from two region (Southwest and East) soils in Jeollanamdo. National industrial complexes have been operated in these regions. PAH concentrations in east region were higher than southeast region, and 9.1 times higher for polluted area and approximately 8.5 times higher for industrial complex were observed. Individual PAH ratios and LMW/HMW ratio indicated that PAHs were emitted from pyrogenic sources in two regions. Average Ant/(Ant+Phe) ratios in southwest and east were 0.14 and 0.22, respectively. From a principal component analysis, it was concluded that PAHs were originated from vehicles and coal power plants.
