Short summary
As a consequence of long-range transported pollution air–sea exchange can become a major source of anthropogenic organic pollutants. Fluxes were studied at a remote coastal site in the Mediterranean, based on gradient measurements in air, measurements in surface seawater and eddy covariance. Night-time maxima in air are explained by volatilisation from the sea surface. Fluctuation of the direction of air–sea exchange indicate that long-term observations are needed.
