Mercury is an important pollutant that can be transported globally due to its long lifetime in the atmosphere. Atmosphere-surface exchange is a major process affecting the cycling of mercury in the global environment and its impacts on food webs. We investigate the sensitivities of the air-surface exchange, atmospheric transport, and budget of mercury to projected 2000e2050 changes in climate and land use/ land cover with a global chemical transport model (GEOS-Chem). We find that annual mean… CONTINUE READING
