Comments on "MERCURY Concentrations in Coastal California Precipitation: Evidence of Local and Trans-Pacific Fluxes of Mercury to North America" By Steding and Flegal (2002)

Abstract: In a paper by Steding and Flegal [2002], the authors claim to identify Hg in rain from trans-Pacific sources. However, we disagree with this conclusion. Our disagreement derives from evaluation of meteorological factors, statistical analyses and identification of the local contribution to Hg in rain measured at their sites.

This work has been funded wholly or in part by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Research and Development. It has been subjected to Agency Review and approved for publication.
