1 CNR – Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research, Rome, Italy Global Mercury Observation System Task HE-02-C1 Nicola Pirrone Global Mercury Observation System Task HE-02-C1 Tracking Pollutants Nicola Pirrone GMOS Coordinator & GEO Task HE-02 Leader GEO-X and 2014 Ministerial Summit

2 CNR – Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research, Rome, Italy GMOS Overarching Objectives To provide spatially and temporally distributed Hg speciated measurements aimed to understand the contribution of source regions vs. selected receptor areas with changing emission regime and meteorological conditions. To validate regional and global scale atmospheric mercury modelling systems able to predict the temporal variations and spatial distributions of ambient concentrations of atmospheric mercury, and Hg fluxes to and from terrestrial and aquatic receptors. To evaluate and identify source-receptor relationships at country scale and their temporal trends for current and projected scenarios of mercury emissions from anthropogenic and natural sources. To develop interoperable tools to allow the sharing of observations and models output data produced by GMOS, for the purposes of research and policy development and implementation as well as support the achievement of goals of the Societal Benefit Areas (SBA) established in GEOSS.

5 CNR – Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research, Rome, Italy The International Framework GEO Task HE-02 “Tracking Pollutants” - C1 “Global Mercury Observation System” UNEP Mercury Program – Global Partnership on Atmospheric Mercury Transport and Fate Research (UNEP F&T) Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollutants (TF HTAP) under the UNECE-LRTAP international conventions. Regional programs

6 CNR – Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research, Rome, Italy Key Aspects for GMOS & HE-02 Should provide spatial distribution of observations with regard to source regions Should be related to all major compartments Should provide Hg content in biotic and abiotic matrixes Should provide direct flux measurements to and from … Monitoring & analytical methods should be robust and highly reproducible All sites must use, to the extent possible, the same SOPs Should use a common QA/QC protocol/system Should allow data sharing and data real-time acquisition Robust data policy POSSIBLY and in the future should be based on low investment and running cost monitoring technologies ….
