Modeling Mercury Fluxes and Concentrations in a Georgia Watershed Receiving Atmospheric Deposition Load from Direct and Indirect Sources

0

Mercury (Hg) is considered a priority pollutant because of its toxicity and potential for strong bioaccumulation.There are many serious environmental and human health concerns associated with elevated levels of Hg linked to industrial Hg emissions.2,3 Complex biological and chemical interactions, however, prolong Hg cycling between the various environmental compartments.4 The complex environmental chemistry of Hg has been reviewed in the literature,1,4,5 and ongoing scientific study continues to elucidate reaction pathways and mechanisms. The following is a brief summary of important Hg fate processes captured in this modeling study.
