Environmental Release of Mercury from Broken Compact Fluorescent Lamps
Abstract: This article presents an original study on the releases of mercury (Hg) from broken compact fluorescent lamps
(CFLs) under various environmental conditions. Results provide useful implications in guiding the handling and
treatment of CFLs during and after use.

Integrating Multi-media Measurements of Mercury in the Great Lakes Region
Abstract: The purpose of the collaborative project for "Integrating Multimedia Measurements of Mercury in the Great Lakes" is to facilitate the accessibility of environmental mercury data. The project will compile a wide variety of mercury data for the Great Lakes region and analyze these data to address key questions about environmental mercury contamination and the exposure and effects on fish and wildlife.

Mercury in the Environment
Abstract: A comprehensive source of information for environmental managers, health professionals, scientists, and the interested public, Mercury in the Environment summarizes mercury cycling and transport and dynamics in terrestrial, aquatic, and atmospheric environments and exposure and effects in humans and wildlife.
Mercury Product Life Cycle Model: Uses and Results [PDF]
Abstract: Provides an analysis of the products and pathways that contribute to mercury in the environment and proposes interventions that, based on the analysis, will do most to reduce mercury pollution.

Northeast Regional Mercury Total Maximum Daily Load [PDF]
Abstract: This Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) document outlines a strategy for reducing mercury concentrations in fish in Northeast fresh waterbodies so that water quality standards can be met. This will require reductions from mercury sources within the Northeast region, U.S. states outside of the region, and global sources.
