1 years for the THEP, which is exposed to high proportions of the more rapidly eliminated p,p'-DDT, to 6 years for the NHEP, for which p,p' -DDE is the major compound ingested.
Concentrations in the NHEP, which are based on measurements in various regions in Greenland, show higher variability than values for the NGP.
The total uptake in the THEP exceeds the total uptake in the TGP by about a factor of 5, and total uptake in the NHEP exceeds uptake in the NGP by a factor of 12.
This route represents the sum of exposure by consumption of marine and freshwater fish and, in the case of the NHEP, also includes marine mammals.
