Mercury concentrations in waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, supplement to: Kulebakina, L G; Kozlova, Svetlana I (1985): Distribution of dissolved and suspended forms of mercury in the 0-100-m layer of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Oceanology, 25(2), 191-195L G Kulebakina & Svetlana I Kozlova
Total mercury concentration in waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea measured in January-April 1982 varied from 0.007 to 0.192 µg/l. Particulate form was 1.6-16% of dissolved form. Inorganic mercury accounted for 16-67% of dissolved mercury. Total mercury concentration in the surface film was 0.74-1.85 µg/l, 10-40 times higher than in seawater. Concentration of particulate form in the film was from 100 to 400 times higher than in seawater.
