Prof. Daniel Jacob

When people think of mercury, they tend to think of the element in its silvery, fluid state—the stuff to avoid if a thermometer breaks.  It’s a fascinating metal in that it is liquid at room temperature, but it is present in the atmosphere as an elemental gas.  Does mercury come from the atmosphere, bodies of water, soil, intentional use of mercury in products and processes (commercial mercury)? Discover where it comes from and where it goes.

This public lecture is sponsored by the Department of Atmospheric Sciences .
