We report here the results of total mercury (HgT) determinations along the 2014 G eotraces Geovide cruise (GA01 transect) in the North Atlantic Ocean (NA) from Lisbon (Portugal) to the coast of Labrador (Canada). HgT concentrations in unfiltered samples (HgT UNF ) were log-normally distributed and ranged between 0.16 and 1.54 pmol L −1 , with a geometric mean of 0.51 pmol L −1 for the 535 samples analysed. The dissolved fraction ( F ), determined on 141 samples, averaged 78 % of the HgT UNF for… CONTINUE READING
