Mercury in the water of small rivers of the Onega Bay basin of the White Sea

Abstract


The results of the expeditionary studies of the mercury behavior in the water of small rivers of the Onega Bay basin of the White Sea are presented. Priority forms of mercury migration have been identified and the forms of its location along the trunk of the Kyanda River have been calculated. The relationship between the content of various forms of mercury on the one hand and salinity, pH, Eh waters on the other has been analyzed. The influence of hydrological phases on the transformation of inorganic forms of mercury has been revealed. Differences in the levels of content of dissolved mercury and its connection with the salinity in the extuar areas of the marginal filters of the Subarctic rivers in natural conditions and the environment of anthropogenic impact were established.
