  • Impact of marine mercury cycling on coastal atmospheric mercury concentrations in the North- and Baltic Sea region

    Johannes Bieser; Corinna Schrum (2016)
    Projects: EC | GMOS (265113)
    Abstract The cycling of mercury between ocean and atmosphere is an important part of the global Hg cycle. Here we study the regional contribution of the air-sea exchange in the North- and Baltic Sea region. We use a newly developed coupled regional chemistry transport modeling (CTM) system to determine the flux between atmosphere and ocean based on the meteorological model COSMO-CLM, the ocean-ecosystem model ECOSMO, the atmospheric CTM CMAQ and a newly developed module for mercury partitioni...

    Current and future levels of mercury atmospheric pollution on a global scale

    Pacyna, Jozef M; Travnikov, Oleg; Simone, Francesca de; Hedgecock, Ian M.; Sundseth, Kyrre; Pacyna, Elisabeth G; Steenhuisen, Frits; Pirrone, Nicola; Munthe, John; Kindbom, Karin (2016)
    Projects: EC | GMOS (265113)
    An assessment of current and future emissions, air concentrations, and atmospheric deposition of mercury worldwide is presented on the basis of results obtained during the performance of the EU GMOS (Global Mercury Observation System) project. Emission estimates for mercury were prepared with the main goal of applying them in models to assess current (2013) and future (2035) air concentrations and atmospheric deposition of this contaminant. The combustion of fossil fuels (ma...

    Atmospheric wet and litterfall mercury deposition at urban and rural sites in China

    X. Fu; X. Yang; X. Yang; X. Lang; X. Lang; J. Zhou; J. Zhou; H. Zhang; B. Yu; H. Yan; C.-J. Lin; C.-J. Lin; C.-J. Lin; X. Feng (2016)
    Projects: EC | GMOS (265113)
    Mercury (Hg) concentrations and deposition fluxes in precipitation and litterfall were measured at multiple sites (six rural sites and an urban site) across a broad geographic area in China. The annual deposition fluxes of Hg in precipitation at rural sites and an urban site were 2.0 to 7.2 and 12.6 ± 6.5 µg m−2 yr−1, respectively. Wet deposition fluxes of Hg at rural sites showed a clear regional difference with elevated deposition fluxes in the subtropical zone, followed b...

    Multi-model study of mercury dispersion in the atmosphere: vertical and interhemispheric distribution of mercury species

    Bieser, Johannes; Slemr, Franz; Ambrose, Jesse; Brenninkmeijer, Carl; Brooks, Steve; Dastoor, Ashu; DeSimone, Francesco; Ebinghaus, Ralf; Gencarelli, Christian N.; Geyer, Beate; Gratz, Lynne E.; Hedgecock, Ian M.; Jaffe, Daniel; Kelley, Paul; Lin, Che-Jen;... (2017)
    Projects: EC | GMOS (265113)
    Atmospheric chemistry and transport of mercury play a key role in the global mercury cycle. However, there are still considerable knowledge gaps concerning the fate of mercury in the atmosphere. This is the second part of a model intercomparison study investigating the impact of atmospheric chemistry and emissions on mercury in the atmosphere. While the first study focused on ground-based observations of mercury concentration and deposition, here we investigate the vertical ...

    Mercury distribution and transport in the North Atlantic Ocean along the GEOTRACES-GA01 transect

    Cossa, Daniel; Heimbürger, Lars-Eric; Pérez, Fiz F.; García-Ibáñez, Maribel I.; Sonke, Jeroen E.; Planquette, Hélène; Lherminier, Pascale; Boutorh, Julia; Cheize, Marie; Menzel Barraqueta, Jan Lukas; Shelley, Rachel; Sarthou, Géraldine (2018)
    Projects: EC | GMOS (265113)
    We report here the results of total mercury (HgT) determinations along the 2014 Geotraces Geovide cruise (GA01 transect) in the North Atlantic Ocean (NA) from Lisbon (Portugal) to the coast of Labrador (Canada). HgT concentrations in unfiltered samples (HgTUNF) were log-normally distributed and ranged between 0.16 and 1.54 pmol L−1, with a geometric mean of 0.51 pmol L−1 for the 535 samples analysed. The dissolved fraction (< 0.45 µm) of HgT (HgTF), determined on 141 s...

    Sensitivity model study of regional mercury dispersion in the atmosphere

    Gencarelli, C. N.; Bieser, J.; Bieser, J.; Carbone, F.; De Simone, F.; Hedgecock, I. M.; Matthias, V.; Travnikov, O.; Yang, X.; Pirrone, N. (2017)
    Projects: EC | GMOS (265113)
    Atmospheric deposition is the most important pathway by which Hg reaches marine ecosystems, where it can be methylated and enter the base of food chain. The deposition, transport and chemical interactions of atmospheric Hg have been simulated over Europe for the year 2013 in the framework of the Global Mercury Observation System (GMOS) project, performing 14 different model sensitivity tests using two high-resolution three-dimensional chemical transport models (CTMs), varyi...

    Monsoon-facilitated characteristics and transport of atmospheric mercury at a high-altitude background site in southwestern China

    H. Zhang; X. Fu; C.-J. Lin; C.-J. Lin; L. Shang; Y. Zhang; X. Feng; C. Lin (2016)
    Projects: EC | GMOS (265113)
    To better understand the influence of monsoonal climate and transport of atmospheric mercury (Hg) in southwestern China, measurements of total gaseous mercury (TGM, defined as the sum of gaseous elemental mercury, GEM, and gaseous oxidized mercury, GOM), particulate bound mercury (PBM) and GOM were carried out at Ailaoshan Station (ALS, 2450 m a.s.l.) in southwestern China from May 2011 to May 2012. The mean concentrations (± SD) for TGM, GOM and PBM were 2.09 ± 0.63, 2.2 ± ...
