In this presentation the author will summarize the various analytical techniques for measuring atmospheric elemental
mercury (HgO) that were utilized in the past and in present-day research. This will include both ground-based and airborne
platforms. The toughest one of all is gaseous oxidized mercury (GOM), of which, the chemical forms in the atmosphere are
unknown. Despite this, many scientists have published work on GOM, but how useful is it? The author?s group has worked
on particulate mercury (Hg
) in marine and continental atmospheres, but measurements of Hg
have not been attempted from
an airborne platform
