The 10th International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP), Halifax, Nova Scotia, July 24-29, 2011

The ICMGP was initiated in Gavle, Sweden, in 1990 and now is held every two to three years as the preeminent international forum for discussion of science and policy issues related to mercury in the environment. The presentation abstracts are available on the website through the Final Technical Program.

Mercury Challenges in the Environment: A Technical Summit
U.S. DOE, Office of Environmental Management, 544 pp, Oct 2009

DOE's Office of Groundwater and Soil Remediation sponsored the technical summit, which convened October 22-23, 2009, at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. Topics included mercury-related regulatory and public issues; mercury at the DOE Oak Ridge site; mechanisms and controls on mercury biogeochemistry; transformation strategies for reducing formation of methylmercury; environment ecological risk assessment; site conceptual modeling of mercury; modeling of mercury transport pathways and associated risk; and innovative characterization and remediation technologies for mercury in sediments, soils, and water. The meeting agenda, abstracts, and many of the presentations are posted on DOE's Groundwater and Soil Remediation Web site under "Workshops and Events."

Binational Toxics Strategy Mercury Workgroup
US EPA Region 5
77 West Jackson Boulevard (A-18J)
Chicago, IL 60604
312-353-2000

The Binational Toxics Strategy Mercury Workgroup's web page provides information about the impact of mercury on human health and the environment and the behavior of mercury in the environment, and, about reducing use and release of mercury, whether through regulation or through sector-specific voluntary activites. The workgroup shares information about cost-effective mercury reduction opportunities, and about meeting the mercury reduction challenges of the Binational Toxics Strategy.
