Abstract

Human activities release heavy metals into the atmosphere where they are also transported across national boundaries. This has resulted in an enrichment of heavy metals in environments that are far from emission sources. Atmospheric deposition of mercury and lead in particular are calculated to be too high, affecting 77 % and 42 % of European ecosystems respectively in 2000.
