Porewater Distribution and Benthic Flux Measurements of Mercury and Methylmercury in the Gulf of Trieste (Northern Adriatic Sea)
The Gulf of Trieste is one of the most mercury-contaminated areas in the Mediterranean Sea. It is characterized by high mercury inputs from the Isonzo River whose tributary, the Idrijca River, drainsExpand

Comparison of distillation with other current isolation methods for the determination of methyl mercury compounds in low level environmental samples
In the present paper two isolation procedures for the separation of methyl mercury compounds (MeHg) from natural water samples, followed by aqueous phase ethylation, precollection on the Carbotrap,Expand

Mercury contamination of coastal sediments as the result of long-term cinnabar mining activity (Gulf of Trieste, northern Adriatic sea)
Abstract The Isonzo river mouth has been the source of Hg in the Gulf of Trieste (northern Adriatic sea) since the sixteenth century, making this shallow basin one of the most contaminated marineExpand

Recovery of Mercury-Contaminated Fisheries
Abstract In this paper, we synthesize available information on the links between changes in ecosystem loading of inorganic mercury (Hg) and levels of methylmercury (MeHg) in fish. Although it isExpand

Microbial mercury transformations in marine, estuarine and freshwater sediment downstream of the Idrija Mercury Mine, Slovenia
Abstract The Idrija Mine, the second largest Hg mine in the world, ceased operation in 1995, but still delivers large quantities of Hg downstream including into the northern Adriatic Sea, 100 kmExpand
