Short summary
The emission of volatile elemental mercury by the sea is an important source of atmospheric mercury. The light-induced biotic and abiotic transformation of deposited ionic mercury to elemental mercury in surface water is highly variable. On research campaigns in the Baltic Sea a new method was applied to measure elemental mercury at high resolution. The Baltic Sea's mercury emission was subsequently calculated based on the new data and the current knowledge of mercury gas exchange parameters.
