The Oslofjord POP Model v.1.0. A fugacity-based non-steady state non-equilibrium multimedia fate and transport model.
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes in detail the development and parameterisation of the Oslofjord POP Model – a fugacity based mass balance model developed to understand and predict the fate of POPs in the Oslofjord, Norway. The model has been developed as part of a research project, entitled “Development and evaluation of a model strategy for POPs in contaminated fjord areas - a case study for PCBs in the Oslofjord" (NFR-project No. 140530/720). The model calculates the environmental distribution, transport and fate of POPs, based on information about environmental characteristics, physical-chemical properties and half-lives as well as historical emissions and advective inflows.
