Global review of Mercury Monitoring Networks

03 July 2019

This review compiles and synthesizes available information on existing mercury monitoring networks, including (i) air monitoring, (ii) human biomonitoring, and (iii) biota monitoring. It also seeks to highlight gaps in the coverage and scope of the monitoring networks, in particular in terms of geographical distribution and institutional organization (global, regional, national and local studies). The report also aims to provide a basis for further coordination and cooperation between the various networks.
