The fate of Hg in the marine food web along west Greenland

Updated 2005-09-30

The aim of the project is to describe and model mercury accumulation up the Arctic food chain. Based on existing knowledge from old projects and new measurements made on frozen tissue samples. This project will contribute to a better understanding of the fate of mercury in the Arctic.

This is a National Implementation Plan (NIP) project
