Abstract: To explore the riverine or atmospheric influence on the source‐sink fates of typical persistent organic pollutants (POPs): polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the large river estuary, atmospheric and seawater samples were collected simultaneously over a whole year at a remote small island in the Yangtze River Estuary (YRE), the East China Sea. A comparable net input of BDE‐209 from the atmosphere to the sea for both air‐water gas exchange and dry/wet deposition was ob…
