Abstract

Evaluation of the impact of anthropogenic mercury (Hg) emissions to the atmosphere requires an understanding of natural background levels and cycling processes. Baseline geochemical surveys indicate that Hg is a significant and highly variable natural constituent of bedrock, surficial sediments, and vegetation. To evaluate the geological contribution of Hg… (More)
