Abstract Mercury volatilization from soils amended to 1 ppm mercury with mercuric nitrate ceased within 1 week after application. During the first week, 20% of the applied mercury was lost from a silty clay-loam soil and 43% was lost from a loamy sand soil. Volatilization of Hg from the loamy sand soil resulted in a concurrent decrease in ammonium nitrate-extractable mercury. Other work with sterile soil indicates that the volatilization was mediated by microorganisms.
