Mercury levels in soil and vegetation

Nico van den Brink

I would like to collect soil and vetegation smaples to analyse mercury levels to create a spatial overview of mercury levels in Arctic terrestrial ecosystems.

In addition to the soil and vegetation I would also like to collect goose faeces, indicative for exposure to contaminants in the food. Most research on mercury in the Arctic has been performed in the marine s
