New Paper: Impact of mercury-containing policies shrinks with delay


A new paper led by former postdoc Helene Angot was published in Environmental Science and Technology and featured in MIT News. We found that the longer countries wait to reduce mercury emissions, the more legacy emissions will accumulate in the environment, and the less effective any emissions-reducing policies will be when they are eventually implemented.

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.
