This theme is achieved through trace analyses of organic and inorganic compounds in environmental samples using molecular marker approach. We seek to understand transport processes of pollutants in the environment and reveal their distributions, sources, behaviors and fates. Intensive field observations and sensitive instrumental analysis will be used to achieve the objectives.Among the areas to be explored are development, evaluation and field application of molecular markers; development of analytical methods of new environmental contaminants and their application; understanding the distribution and behavior of the contaminants in environments; estimation of sources of organic micro-pollutants; uptake and accumulation of organic and inorganic micro-pollutants to organisms; development of monitoring methods for organic and inorganic micro-pollutants.
