Using Lake Ontario as an example, this paper presents estimates of atmospheric inputs of mercury based on an atmospheric deposition and air-water exchange paradigm, invoking recent environmental measurement data obtained in the vicinity of this lake. These calculations consider not only direct deposition (wet & dry) to the lake surface, but also take into account atmospheric loading to the surrounding watershed (drainage basin), as well as mass transfer of elemental Hg at the air-water interface.
