Abstract
(English)
Mercury measurements in atmospheric, vegetation and soil samples from Mt. Etna (Sicily) after the major eruption of October 1989 are reported. For air mercury collection gold amalgamatorsarranged in series were used and the interference of atmospheric substances with the Au-Hg amalgam was considered. The results show that substances released into the atmosphere during the volcanic activity interfered with air Hg determination. The evaluation of Hg impact on the environment by means of soil and vegetation analyses was also made difficult by phenomena peculiar to the volcanic activity
