From 1992 till 1994 sampling campaigns were carried out in the Scheldt estuary the year round, in order to assess the behaviour of the various Hg species. On the basis of these data annual and seasonal budgets were calculated for particulate Hg, total dissolved Hg and dissolved methylmercury. These budgets allow evaluation of the consistency of each individual flux or process such as the inputs of the various Hg species into the North Sea, the sedimentation flux of particulate Hg in the area of high turbidity, the evasional fluxes, the formation rates of Hg°, etc. in relation to the other ones.
