Abstract

The basis of this project was to collect research data for Mercury, from the sixty-four Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs), as well as from Open Oceans; the data for integration can be found in global database archives-environment monitoring programmes, such as government organisations, non-government organization, scientific reports and articles. The need to collect data on Mercury Pollution from Anthropogenic and Natural sources is required for establishing baselines and global trends in Large Marine Ecosystems and Open Oceans. Research indicates that Pollution is often trans-boundary as hydrological inter-linkages between River basins, Marine Ecosystems, and the Atmosphere have resulted in effects far away from the sources of emission. Pollution caused by Anthropogenic sources is of global concern and it is believed that population growth, mobility and an increasing need for goods and services, exacerbated Mercury pollution effects in a global scale. Mercury has the potential as a global indicator in the Trans-boundary Assessment Programme, however, further developments in data are necessary.
