Fate and toxicity of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) in the soil and aquatic systems of Soyang Lake Watershed


From 07/2010

Principal Investigator: Bernd Huwe
Staff: Jong Yol Park
Grant: - Doctoral Fellowship DAAD

Abstract: The main goal of this study is to analyze import, transfer, fate of PPCPs as trace pollutants in situ and ex situ. This study attempts to examine the fate and transport of PPCPs in small fields using LC-ESI-MS/MS as a tool to monitor. In addition, transport and sorption of selected PPCPs in undisturbed soil columns will be evaluated with bromide tracer and HYDRUS software. Contribution of preferential flow and colloid-facilitated transport to the overall PPCPs movement to subsurface drain will also be featured in field studies and column experiments in this project. The output of this project will extend our knowledge of PPCPs and other emerging pollutants which are likely to affect organisms as well as human beings.
