Description
The factors influencing the distribution and speciation of mercury in the Scheldt estuary and Southern North Sea were investigated. more

16 cruises on the Scheldt estuary were performed between 1991 and 1998 and 8 cruises on the North Sea (Belgian coast) were performed between 1995 and 1998. Samples from the English Channel and Central North Sea were also taken in 1991, 1993 and 1998. Parameters : dissolved and particulate total mercury and methylmercury, dissolved gaseous Hg
