Journal Article: Lidar Search For Atmospheric Atomic Mercury In Icelandic Geothermal Fields

Abstract
A search for atmospheric atomic mercury as a possible tracer gas for geothermal energy exploration was performed in three Icelandic geothermal fields using the differential absorption lidar technique. Contrary to expectations, concentrations basically only at the Atlantic background value of about 2 ng/m3 were found in Iceland.
