Abstract

The review deals with the turnover and translocation of natural soil mercury and mercury which has been deposited from the atmosphere. Direct anthropogenic mercury inputs have only been considered in the order of magnitudes which are used in agricultural and forest systems. The fate of mercury in heavily contaminated soils (greater than about 10 mg(*)/kg), as in the case of some industrial or mining areas, may be different, as other biological, physical and chemical mechanisms and reactions may be dominant.
