Mercury Wet Deposition Monitoring in Asia
NADP continues to work with many agencies in the Asia-Pacific region to develop a network of mercury wet deposition and atmospheric mercury collectors, to develop standardized measurements, support monitoring, and encourage data sharing. The Asia-Pacific Mercury Monitoring Network should begin limited pilot monitoring in Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia during the next several months. This work also supported by groups in the Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and the U.S. and Canada.
A meeting of the Science Advisory Group will occur in Hanoi, Vietnam during September 2014. This meeting will focus on finalization of the Standard Operating Protocols, training of new monitoring groups, along with introducing more countries to the AMNet effort.
NADP is providing advice on monitoring methods and network operations.All interested parties are welcome to join in the effort to formulate a mercury network in Asia
