    Author : Hongyan Zou; Michael McLachlan; Keri Hornbuckle; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; chemical benchmarking; persistence; half-lives; modeling; threshold benchmarking; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Persistence is one of the core criteria in chemical exposure and hazard assessment. It is often defined as the half-life for the removal of a chemical from a specified environment by transformation. Chemicals with long transformation half-lives may pose high risks for wildlife or humans and be subject to long-range transport to remote areas. READ MORE
