Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution 2010

Part B - Mercury

This is one part of a four-volume set that presents a state-of-the-science assessment of the intercontinental transport of air pollutants across the Northern Hemisphere. The first three volumes are technical assessments of the state-of-science with respect to intercontinental transport of ozone and particulate matter, mercury, and persistent organic pollutants. The fourth volume is a synthesis of the main findings and recommendations of Parts A, B, and C organized around a series of policy-relevant questions that were identified at the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution’s first meeting.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter reviews global mercury emission estimates published in recent years, and describes relative contributions from major anthropogenic and natural sources as well as from natural ecosystem-driven processes (re-emissions/recycling). The assessment of historical and current emissions for both anthropogenic and natural source categories is supplemented by scenario evaluations for the target years of 2025 and 2050.
