The Workshop on the Fate, Transport, and Transformation of Mercury in Aquatic and Terrestrial Environments was held on May 8 10, 2001 in West Palm Beach, Florida. The workshop was conducted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Office of Research and Development (ORD) and cosponsored by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Toxics Program, the USEPA Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Program, the South Florida Mercury Science Program, and the USGS/USEPA Mercury Roundtable. Representatives from industry, academia, environmental organizations, consulting firms, and government attended. The purpose of the workshop was to bring researchers, decision makers, government representatives, and others together to discuss the state of the science regarding the fate and transport of mercury in aquatic and terrestrial systems, mercury transformation processes (biotic and abiotic), and methods for managing ecological and human exposures to methylmercury (MeHg).
