Lidar Measurements of Atmospheric Mercury

Abstract
Mercury is the only atmospheric pollutant that is present in the atmosphere in atomic form. The optical resonance line at 254 nm can be used for absorption measurements using different optical remote sensing techniques. Range-resolved Hg mapping can be performed using the differential absorption lidar (DIAL) technique. We have used the lidar technique both for mapping of industrial plumes and for background concentration measurements. Our studies also include Hg of geophysical origin.
