Paper Abstract

The application of a mobile differential absorption lidar (DIAL) system in monitoring the atmospheric distribution of atomic mercury is discussed. The DIAL technique using the 253.65 nm Hg resonance line has been employed in studies of industrial emissions as well as geophysical manifestations. Hg concentrations down to the background value 2 ng/m3 can be measured.
