The total PAH burden of the plough layer has increased approximately 4-fold since the 1880/ 1890s, with some compounds (notably, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, benzo[a]pyrene, benzo[e]pyrene, pyrene, benzo[a]-anthracene, and indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene) showing substantially greater increases. Average rates of increase for individual PAHs in the Rothamsted plots over the century since 1880/1890 are similar to contemporary atmospheric deposition rates to semirural locations.
