In the project, mercury released to the air from local, regional, national, and global sources will be modeled from emissions to eventual deposition. The modeling will be carried out using a special version of the NOAA HYSPLIT atmospheric fate and transport model enhanced to simulate atmospheric mercury. Gridded meteorological data from NOAA and other agencies will be used to drive the HYSPLIT model. Mercury emissions inventories from EPA, States, and international agencies / institutions will be used as inputs to the model.
