Short summary
This study was initiated to identify the sources affecting speciated mercury concentrations measured on the island located between mainland Korea and China. The results from various approaches consistently show that Korean sources are most important for gaseous oxidized form while for other Hg species regional transport was also important. It is also suggested that the secondary formation of particulate Hg becomes more important as the significance of long-range transport increased.
