Concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were determined in water and sediment samples at 15 sites in Lake Balaton during three sampling campaigns in 1996. PAHs were concentrated from water samples by solid phase extraction. Sediment samples were extracted with acetone in an ultrasonic bath then cleaned by solid phase extraction. The total concentration of PAHs ranged from 30-360 ng g-1 and from 170-720 ng L-1 in sediment and water samples, respectively. Spatial and temporal variations of the concentration of PAHs were also investigated.
