Short summary
The Tibetan Plateau (TP) is often referred to as the third pole. There is still a gap in knowledge regarding the distribution of emerging perfluoroalkyl substances and cyclic volatile methylsiloxanes in the Tibetan environment. By using passive air samplers, higher levels of emerging compounds were generally observed at sites close to the transport channel of the Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon and cities of the TP.
