Investigation of Atmospheric Mercury Pollution in Guilin
Atmospheric mercury in Guilin was monitored systematically, the content ranged from 7.69 to 39.93ng/m3. In general, from industrial areas to hospital areas, to commercial areas, to garden greenbelt, to residential areas, to culture and education regions, the average value of atmospheric mercury content decreased successively, it ranged from 22.89 to 9.94 ng/m3. The atmospheric mercury content was influenced by temperature, height, rainfall and circulation of air. The result of the investigation shows that the atmospheric mercury mainly comes from the emission of gaseous mercury of industrial production and special service sector, automobile exhaust, point sources of mercury pollution and transport of gaseous mercury from distance.
