Abstract

Recent observations of elevated mercury levels in fish caught in remote lakes has renewed research into mercury cycling. This article initially examines the mechanisms of mercury elevation within lake ecosystems. The method of analysis of the Adirondack lakes is described, and the results are presented, including detailed discussion of lake water chemistry and levels of mercury within fish. -R.Gower
