  • M efforts have been made to reduce sulfur emissions in Europe. Acid rain pollution in Norway has diminished substantially, thanks to the 1979 Geneva Convention on Longrange Transboundary Air Pollution, which was implemented starting in 1983. Parallel with the reduction in acid rain, atmospheric concentrations and deposition of mercury (Hg) have also been reduced. Here, we show that reduced acid rain may have increased dissolved organic carbon in runoff, and enhanced transport of mercury from… CONTINUE READING
