|Proceedings and Summary Report, Workshop on the Fate, Transport, and Transformation of Mercury in Aquatic and Terrestrial Environments (180 pp, 2.06 MB) (EPA/625/R-02/005)
This document contains a description of the goals, technical sessions, and conclusions from a workshop that was held May 8–10, 2001, in West Palm Beach, Florida. The workshop was conducted by EPA’s Office of Research and Development and was cosponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Toxics Program, EPA’s Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Program, the South Florida Mercury Science Program, and the EPA/USGS Mercury Roundtable. Representatives from industry, academia, environmental organizations, consulting firms, and government attended.
The purpose of the workshop was to bring researchers, decision makers, government representatives, and others together to discuss the state of the science regarding the fate and transport of mercury in aquatic and terrestrial systems, mercury transformation processes (biotic and abiotic), and methods for managing ecological and human exposures to methyl mercury.
Five technical sessions were presented:
Two poster sessions were also conducted, covering topics that could not be included in the workshop due to time constraints. These sessions expanded the scope of the workshop and were a key element of the workshop.
