For a long time it has been recognized that the atmosphere is an important pathway for the transport of pollutants from industrialized and densely populated areas to ecosystems near to or far from these areas. In particular, the important role of the atmospheric pathway in the pollution of Europe’s marginal seas by land-based sources was identified more than a decade ago (Cambray et al.1979; Van Aalst et al.,1982).,In case of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) transport through the atmosphere may even lead to hemispheric or global distribution of the pollutants.
