Dynamics of Mercury Pollution on Regional and Global Scales

This book provides a detailed overview of our current understanding of different dynamic patterns involved in the redistribution of mercury in the global environment and its impact on human health and ecosystems. Mercury pollution in different regions of the world is a growing concern from environmental and epidemiological point of view. The increasing trends of energy production from fossil fuel combustion, mercury usage in a large variety of ...

Mercury Fate and Transport in the Global Atmosphere

Mercury, primarily because of its existence and bioaccumulation as methylmercury in aquatic organisms, is a concern for the health of higher trophic level organisms, or to their consumers. This is the major factor driving current research in mercury globally and in environmental regulation, and is the driver for the current UNEP Global Partnership for Mercury Transport and Fate Research (UNEP F&T) initiative. The overall focus of the UNEP F&T ...

Global and Regional Mercury Cycles: Sources, Fluxes and Mass Balances

Essential themes in the biochemical cycling of mercury are the relative importance of anthropogenic versus natural sources, transformation and migration processes at the local, regional and global scale, global emission inventories of different mercury sources (both point and diffuse) of both natural and anthropogenic origin. In this regard, Siberia, with its vast territory and variety of natural zones, is of special interest in the global ...

Mercury as a Global Pollutant: Human Health Issues

This book comprises papers which were initially presented as part of the Human Health Effects of Methylmercury section at the Fourth International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant held in Hamburg, Germany, August 4-8, 1996. The international concern for the human health effects of methylmercury, especially potential effects on the fetus, continues and is the basis for a number of the papers presented in this book. The papers ...
