Rates and Mechanisms of Mercury Methylation in Marine Coastal Sediments

PI: David Shull, Western Washington University

Project Number:2003-R/RC-88

Start Date:2003-03-01End Date:2005-02-28


Proposal Summary

The goal of this project is to determine the relationship between mercury methylation and the behavior of benthic organisms in sediment in Boston Harbor. The research is expected to help develop a conceptual model for methyl mercury production controls in marine sediments.
