Abstract

Despite demands to regulate mercury emissions more stringently, it is not clear that controls will reduce levels of toxic methylmercuiy in the environment. Robert P. Mason with the University of Maryland, Michael L. Abbot of Idaho National Laboratory, R. A. Bodaly from Fisheries and Oceans Canada, O. Russell Bullock, Jr., at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Charles T. Driscoll from Syracuse University, David Evers at the BioDiversity Research Institute, Steven E. Lindberg with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Michael Murray of the National Wildlife Federation, and Edward B. Swain from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency propose an extensive, long-term monitoring program to determine how changes in mercury emissions affect the environment.
