Light has been previously shown to play a role in the emission of mercury from soil; however, the mechanisms involved in this process are not well understood. In an effort to identify the wavelength of light that dominates this process, we conducted extensive laboratory studies of soil mercury flux using a dynamic flux chamber. Mercury fluxes were measured at constant temperature in the dark, under full spectrum radiation (l = 320-700 nm) and under various radiation bands including 410-700 nm radiation, 3…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
