Geoscience Lab, (OGS) MRD123 Lithogeochemical Database: Hg by CV-AFS, following aqua regia digestion

General Methodology:

Mercury concentration was determined by cold vapour atomic fluorescence spectrometry. The sample was digested with nitric and hydrochloric acids; the mercury was reduced to elemental form and separated as a volatile on which the atomic fluorescence was measured.
