Abstract

This work analyzes surface sediment samples collected from forty stations along the Kaohsiung coast in southern Taiwan for chlorobenzenes (CBs) and hexachlorobutadiene (HCBD). The highest CBs concentrations are recorded in a station located at about 10 km west off the outlet of Da-lin-pu ocean outfall pipe, with total di-, tri-, tetra-, penta- and hexa-chlorobenzenes concentrations of 290.5, 117.1, 64.5, 15.7, and 22.3 ng/g, respectively. The major pollution source of HCBD is most likely the Tso-yin ocean outfall pipe. While the Dah- lin-pu ocean
