Mercury concentrations of snow samples from the McMurdo Ice Shelf and the Antarctic plateau
Entry ID: K092_1987_1989_NZ_1

Abstract: Analysis of mercury concentrations from snow samples from Antarctica should indicate global fluxes of mercury to the atmosphere, since it is a remote location away from any regional mercury sources. Furthermore, it may be possible to determine the human contribution to the total atmospheric mercury flux by comparing the mercury content of recent and pre-industrial snow. Snow samples were taken ... View entire text
