The interest in atmospheric deposition by the scientific community has increased a great deal over the past several years because of its significant contribution to the pollution budget of many natural waters. Dry deposition is an effective removal mechanism for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from the atmosphere. This study focuses on the understanding of the particulate dry deposition of PCBs in urban areas. In this paper, 43 chromatographic PCB congener peaks which represent 50 individual or coeluting congeners were evaluated.
