Abstract

Gaseous elemental mercury (GEM) is converted to reactive gaseous mercury (RGM) during springtime Atmospheric Mercury Depletion Events (AMDE). This study reports the longest time series of GEM, RGM and particle-bound mercury (PHg) concentrations from a European Arctic site. From 27 April 2007 until 31 December 2008 composite GEM, RGM and PHg measurements were conducted in Ny-Alesund (78 degrees 54' N, 11 degrees 53' E). The average concentrations of the complete dataset were 1.6 +/- 0.3 ng m(-3), 8 +/- 13 pg m(-3) and 8 +/- 25 pg m(-3) for GEM, RGM and PHg, respectively. For the complete dataset the atmospheric mercury distribution was 99% GEM, whereas RGM and PHg constituted
