Abstract

In 2017, the seasonal variations in the wet deposition fluxes of total-PCDD/Fs-WHO 2005 -TEQ in ambient air were evaluated in Taiwan. The results showed the annual wet deposition fluxes of total-PCDD/Fs-WHO 2005 -TEQ to be 42.5 pg WHO 2005 -TEQ m –2 month –1 , and the seasonal distributions were 53.3, 62.9, 26.7 and 27.1 pg WHO 2005 -TEQ m –2 month –1 in spring, summer, autumn and winter, respectively. The average S tot of total-PCDD/Fs-WHO 2005 -TEQ was 12300. There were obvious seasonal variations in S tot , for which the values were 13840, 6540, 8280 and 20540 in spring, summer, autumn, and winter, respectively. The average concentration of total-PCDD/Fs-WHO 2005 -TEQ in the rain were 0.453, 0.176, 0.218 and 0.649 pg WHO 2005 -TEQ L –1 in spring, summer, autumn and winter, respectively. Atmospheric deposition is the major removal pathway for PCDD/Fs. The results of this study provide an evaluation of the adverse effects of PCDD/Fs exposure on human health, and provide a reason for the government to be concerned and to enact better control on air pollution.
