Abstract

East Dongting Lake and Hong Lake are two typical lakes in the middle watershed of the Yangtze River, China. The differences in the hydrological condition and human activities of the region may result in the differences in concentrations, distribution, and sources of contaminants. The levels, sources, distribution, and ecological risk of OHCs, including 15 OCPs, 7 PCBs, and 7 PBDEs in surface sediments and water from this region, were investigated. OCPs and PCBs were the predominant pollutants in water and sediments samples, respectively. Source analysis showed that HCHs, PBDEs, and PCBs were mainly from the historical input of commercial products, but there were recent discharges of DDT into the water. The spatial distribution of OHCs showed that higher levels of OHCs in sediments and water were found in the sampling sites far away from the estuary of Hong Lake, but such obvious distribution characteristic was not found in East Dongting Lake. TOC played a crucial role in the retention of OCPs in the sediments of Hong Lake, but significant correlation between TOC and OCPs for East Dongting Lake, TOC and PCBs or PBDEs for both lakes were not found. The possible adverse biological effects could be caused by OCPs residues in sediments of both lakes, and it was worse for Hong Lake. The noncarcinogenic and carcinogenic risk assessment of HCHs and DDTs indicated the water quality of both lakes was safe for bathing and drinking. The potential ecotoxicological risks of PBDEs and PCBs of both lakes were rather low.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 February 2019.
All research outputs
#8,118,155
of 12,995,916 outputs
Outputs from Archives of Environmental Contamination & Toxicology
#1,074
of 1,577 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#157,899
of 265,183 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Archives of Environmental Contamination & Toxicology
#8
of 30 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,995,916 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,577 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.8. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 265,183 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 30 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
