Total gaseous mercury (TGM) has been measured at Mace Head since 1995. The Mace Head mercury (Hg) data for background marine conditions are invaluable for monitoring changes in Northern Hemispheric background concentrations. It is also possible to assess national and transboundary contributions from Europe to Hg concentrations at the site, based on detailed backward trajectory analysis of air masses arriving from non marine sectors.
