Abstract
(English)
The dissolved gaseous mercury concentration and mercury degassing rate have been measured in a marine area polluted by a chlor-alkali plant (Rosignano Solvay, Italy), which uses mercury in chlorine production. During the summer the DGM concentration (130 pg l-1) and the evasional flux (14 ng m-2 h-1) were 3-4 times higher than those measured at the control stations. A seasonal behaviour has been highlighted at all the sampling sites, with minimum levels in the winter.
