ESR 10

Project Title:        Traceability of Hg speciation measurements in the atmosphere.
Host:                    P S Analytical, Orpington, Greater London, UK
Supervisor:          Dr W T Corns
Co-supervisors:    M. Horvat (JSI), I.Krom (VSL)
Enrolment in Doctoral degree: Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School - JSIPS, Slovenia

Context:
accurate and precise determination of Hg species in the atmosphere are required to understand the fate, transformation and global transportation of Hg. Currently, air monitoring networks are setup to  determine total, particulate, oxidized and elemental forms of Hg. The accuracy of these measurements and integrity of sampling arrangements is currently in question as traceable calibration sources for each form of Hg at appropriate atmospheric concentration ranges have yet to be developed and installed in the field.

Objectives:
to develop, establish and implement a traceable calibration methodology for oxidized Hg species; to study, develop and compare different methods of measuring oxidized Hg; to accurately compare total Hg concentrations in generated standard gases for elemental Hg and oxidized Hg; to develop and evaluate optimal sampling procedures for particulate, oxidized and elemental Hg; to apply the developed methodologies to test and validate new and existing methods for on-line Hg measurement under field conditions. Collaboration with ESRs 1, 2, 7, 8.

Expected Results:
Validated calibration sources for Hg(0) and Hg(II) for low level gaseous Hg measurements. Expanded uncertainty budgets for atmospheric Hg speciation measurements. Validated and tested protocols applied at observation stations and cruises,Figure 2. (2 papers).

Planned secondments:
VSL (I. Krom), 1 month, traceable calibration sources for Hg(0) and Hg(II); JSI, (M. Horvat), 2x2 months, training on Hg speciation using conventional techniques, calibration sources and testing, Lumex (S. Mashyanov), 1 month, direct testing of Hg(II) calibration device for Hg(II) using modified Lumex Zeeman AAS instruments.
