The Stockholm Convention [ 6 ] registered 12 contaminant group species of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and prioritized global
impacts. For example, the Stockholm Convention [ 2 ] classified twelve contaminant group species of POPs into three categories in order to limit their impacts: category A, compounds or groups to be eliminated such as organochlorine pesticides and

Following the claimed nuclear test in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on October 9, 2006, and a reported
seismic event, a mobile system for sampling of atmospheric xenon was transported to the Republic of South Korea (ROK) in an
attempt to detect possible emissions of radioxenon in the region from a presumed test. Five samples were collected in the
ROK during October 11–14, 2006 near the ROK–DPRK border, and thereafter transported to the Swedish Defense Research Agency
(FOI) in Stockholm, Sweden, for analysis. Following the initial measurements, an automatic radioxenon sampling and analysis
system was installed at the same location in the ROK, and measurements on the ambient atmospheric radioxenon background in
the region were performed during November 2006 to February 2007. The measured radioxenon concentrations strongly indicate
that the explosion in October 9, 2006 was a nuclear test. The conclusion is further strengthened by atmospheric transport
models. Radioactive xenon measurement was the only independent confirmation that the supposed test was in fact a nuclear explosion
and not a conventional (chemical) explosive.
