Historical atmospheric mercury emissions and depositions in North America compared to mercury accumulations in sedimentary records
Abstract Gold and silver production in North America (included United States, Canada and Mexico) released a large amount of mercury to the atmosphere until well into this century when mercury (Hg)Expand

Effects of methylmercury on reproduction in American kestrels.
Sixty breeding pairs of captive American kestrels (Falco sparverius) were exposed to a range of sublethal dietary concentrations of mercury (Hg), in the form of methylmercuric chloride, and theirExpand

Spatial and temporal trends in surface water and sediment contamination in the Laurentian Great Lakes.
Data from recent sediment and surface water surveys have been collated and mapped to illustrate the spatial distribution of contaminants across the entire Great Lakes basin. Information fromExpand

Effects of injected methylmercury on the hatching of common loon (Gavia immer) eggs
To determine the level of in ovo methylmercury (MeHg) exposure that results in detrimental effects on fitness and survival of loon embryos and hatched chicks, we conducted a field study in which weExpand

Spatial and temporal patterns in mercury contamination in sediments of the Laurentian Great Lakes.
Data from recent sediment surveys have been collated and mapped in order to determine the spatial distribution of mercury in sediments across the entire Great Lakes basin. Information from historicalExpand

Spatial and temporal patterns of mercury accumulation in lacustrine sediments across the Laurentian Great Lakes region.
Data from 104 sediment cores from the Great Lakes and "inland lakes" in the region were compiled to assess historical and recent changes in mercury (Hg) deposition. The lower Great Lakes showed sharpExpand

Trace Element Concentrations in Near-Surface Waters of the Great Lakes and Methods of Collection, Storage, and Analysis
Abstract From 1980 through 1985, waters of the Great Lakes were sequentially sampled for dissolved, paniculate, and total trace elements. Major sampling occurred in 1980 for Lake Huron, in 1981 forExpand

Dietary Toxicity and Tissue Accumulation of Methylmercury in American Kestrels
American kestrels (Falco sparverius) were fed meat diets containing 0, 3, 6, or 12 ppm (dry weight) methylmercury chloride. Birds fed the 12-ppm diet started to show signs of neurotoxicity after 26Expand

Total and Methyl Mercury Accumulation in 1994–1995 Lake Michigan Lake Trout and Forage Fish
ABSTRACT As part of the Lake Michigan Mass Balance Project, total and methyl mercury were determined for lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) and five forage fish species collected from Lake MichiganExpand

Model construct and calibration of an integrated water quality model (LM2-Toxic) for the Lake Michigan Mass Balance Project
The Lake Michigan Mass Balance Project (LMMBP) was a part of the Enhanced Monitoring Plan (EMP) for Lake Michigan (McCarty et al., 2006). PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) were one of the targetedExpand
