We are quantifying environmental processes that control the fate of mercury and other toxic chemicals in ecosystems.
We are collaborated with a variety of researchers to quantify mercury dynamics and speciation in DRCongo Rivers, Lakes and atmospheric Air. We are currently examining similar processes in freshwater, ocean water, soil, and fish.
EmiAfrican’s staff are focusing on research and publications of their work in accredited journals, below are scientific articles:
