Air-water exchange is one of the processes of fundamental importance in the redistribution of semi-volatile organic compounds (SOC) in aquatic systems. A discussion on the importance of air-water exchange of PAH and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) in limnic and estuarine systems covers linkages to pollutant cycles in an aquatic and terrestrial ecosystem; concerns on the aquatic foodchain; model formulations and field situations; and improved estimates of air-water exchanges of PCB and new estimates for PAH for Green Bay, Lake Michigan, and southern Lake Michigan. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 221st ACS National Meeting (San Diego, CA 4/1-5/2001).
