Organic material: the primary control on mercury methylation and ambient methyl mercury concentrations in estuarine sediments.

Abstract

Estuarine environments that have no direct sources of mercury (Hg) pollution may have sediment concentrations of methylmercury (MeHg) as high as those of polluted marine environments. In this study we examined the biogeochemical factors affecting net methylation and sediment MeHg concentrations in an unpolluted estuarine environment, the Ore River estuary… (More)
