Article examining the physiological processing and archiving of mercury in trees accepted in Biogeosciences

Published on: 2022-09-08

The FEWA Lab is pleased to announce the publication of research in Copernicus/EGU Journal Biogeosciences. This research is titled:  “Internal tree cycling and atmospheric archiving of mercury: examination with concentration and stable isotope analyses”. It adds some really important information on source characterization with dendrochorology and isotope geochemistry and also new findings on the internal processing of mercury in temperate/boreal forest tree species. It is open access and freely available to all and we welcome everyone to check it out: https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-19-4415-2022.

Also, I’m very excited to announce that I will be joining the same journal, Biogeosciences, as an associate editor. This is a Interactive Open Access journal with an open (on-line) preprint and review process that I am a big fan of. I’m really proud to be joining this exciting team and hope I can help to journal continue to deliver fantastic science in the biogeosciences.
