Abstract

This study focuses on the seasonal variation and the potential sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the surficial soils surrounding a coal-based thermal plant (Udupi Power Corporation Limited- UPCL in 8 KM Radius) in southwest coast of India. The study area lies in the close proximity of the National highway (NH 66) and different State Highways (SH 67, SH 1 and SH 70). Seasonal (pre-monsoon, early-monsoon, monsoon and post-monsoon period) surficial soil sample were collected at 12 stations from January 2012 to January 2013. Gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer was used to analyze PAHs compounds
