Description: The objective of this study was to determine how forest fire effects Hg deposition to nearby landscapes impacted by smoke plumes. Hg concentrations and deposition were hypothesized to increase in throughfall and open precipitation after fire, and canopy type was hypothesized to influence the magnitude of the increase. Conifer canopies, which are better able to scavenge Hg from the atmosphere than deciduous canopies, were hypothesized to have greater changes in throughfall THg and MeHg concentrations.
