Tracking Mercury Conversion and Distribution in Aquatic Environments

April 3, 2024

The NIEHS Superfund Research Program recently featured our work in their monthly Research Brief with an article, video and podcast! The study published earlier this year in Environmental Science & Technology describes the timescales for which different source inputs of mercury are transformed to similar chemical forms and distribution patterns in freshwater wetlands.
