PROJECT DESCRIPTION

(1997-04-12 - 1997-11-02) To measure levels of trace mercury (Hg) and organic carbon dissolved in soil water and stream water in three sites on the western side of Mount Mansfield. Additional objectives include: to determine which soil horizon contains more Hg, to determine if Hg concentrations are positively correlated with DOC and color, and whether total Hg dissolved in streams is more closely related to total Hg dissolved in O soil water that B soil water. The results will allow us to learn more about the transport of Hg from forest watersheds to streams and lakes in Vermont.
