Using the automated mercury vapor analyzer and dynamic flux chamber (DFC) method, the pathways of mercury emissions to atmosphere were measured at a closed landfill in Wuhan, China. The results show that the mainly pathway is by the surface cover, and emissions from vent pipes is negligible. Average Hg fluxes during the observation period was (192.5 +/- 245.3) ng x (m2 x h)(-1), which was 1 - 2 orders of magnitude greater than that from background zone. Hg flux exhibited a clearly diurnal… CONTINUE READING
