In a recent paper published in Science as a policy forum, Noelle Selin proposed a new metric, Equivalent Atmospheric Mercury Deposition, that can be used to help policy-makers better understand the timescales of mercury cycling in the environment. See the paper here.
During the 2017 International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant, teams of scientists got together to summarize our latest knowledge about mercury pollution. The resulting four papers were published in Ambio: global processes, landscape-scale processes, human and environmental health, and science-policy. Our group contributed to two of these (global processes and science-policy). Find all the papers (open access) here.
