Total and methylated mercury in Canadian Arctic waters (2016)

Unfiltered aqueous total and methyl mercury concentrations were measured from water collection on board the NGCC/CCGS Amundsen at stations within the Beaufort Sea, Amundsen Gulf, and the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Profiles of 10-12 m depth resolution were collected from 15 stations using the ship rosette system. Total mercury samples were analyzed on board. Methylmercury samples were preserved and transported to Winnipeg for analysis. Interpretation of results will also rely on supporting data from ArcticNet collaborators to identify water masses and determine biological productivity that determine the relative importance of external sources and internal cycling.
