Project Overview

This project measures atmospheric mercury fractions which contribute to dry and total mercury deposition. Proctor Maple Research Center and VMC participate in a network of sites collecting concentrations of atmospheric mercury species from automated, continuous measuring systems coordinated by the National Atmospheric Deposition Program.


This project measures concentrations of particle-bound mercury, gaseous elemental mercury and gaseous oxidized mercury to determine the trends in atmospheric mercury concentrations; to measure deposition in aquatic and other ecosystems; and to help with modeling.
