Work Package: Heavy Metals Road Map Project

Dissolved gaseous mercury was continously measured (with 5 min resolution) in surface seawater along the Arctic Ocean 2016 cruise track. The bow water system was used to pump seawater into the wetlab where the water was purged with clean air, releasing dissolved gaseous elemental mercury (DGM) into the outgoing air. An opposite flow extractor was used for the purging and a Tekran 2537
