[ID: 335] Eddy Mercury – Utilizing novel eddy covariance technique to quantify Hg flux from the boreal landscapes
PI: Haijun Peng
We will conduct a study on (1) Hg(0) flux measurements on the two peatlands (Hälsingfors and Degerö) using the direct non-intrusive using advanced Hg(0) Eddy Covariance Technique, (2) ambient air Hg(II) concentration measurements using membrane method, (3) measurements of Hg wet deposition via precipitation. These measurements will allow us to elucidate the pathways in which atmospheric Hg species enter the boreal forest ecosystem and to quantify the magnitudes of Hg deposition for the individual pathways.
