Abstract: Five studies of the background level of perfluorocarbon compounds in Europe are presented together with measurements from the European Tracer Experiment (ETEX). The PFC background concentrations were detected and compared to concentrations found in other PFC studies in the USA.The European concentrations were found to be higher than the American concentrations.They were still low and stable enough to show that PFCs are highly suitable for use in tracer studies in Europe.A study of the correlation between the measured PFCs showed a significant correlation for most of the coumpounds. This indicate that there are no major continuous PFC sources in Europe.
