Short summary
In this study, mercury (Hg) was sampled weekly in dry and wet deposition and throughfall and monthly in litterfall, and it was volatilized from soil from August 2008 to February 2010 to identify the factors influencing the amount of atmospheric Hg deposited to forested areas in a temperate deciduous forest in South Korea.
