Speciation measurements of airborne mercury species in northern Finland; Evidence for long range transport of air masses depleted in mercury
Paper i proceeding, 2013

Mercury speciation measurements were performed at the Arctic measurement site, Pallas Matorova, in northern Finland during the period 12-04-02 to 12-04-26. For the first time Hg speciation measurements with high sensitivity and temporal resolution were performed at this site. The measurement allowed simultaneous determination of TGM, GEM, GOM and particulate bound mercury. Evidence for long range transport of air masses depleted in mercury is provided as well as a study of possible mercury sources determining the temporal variations in airborne mercury species at the site.
