Mercury and halogen emissions from Masaya and Telica volcanoes, Nicaragua

Abstract:

We report measurements of Hg, SO₂, and halogens (HCI, HBr, HI) in volcanic gases from Masaya volcano, Nicaragua, and gasceous SO₂ and halogens from Telica volcano, Nicaragua. Mercury measurements were made with a Lumex 915+ portable mercury vapor analyzer and gold traps, while halogens, CO₂ and S species were monitored with a portable multi gas sensor and filter packs. Lumex Hg concentrations in the plume were consistently above background and ranged up to 350 ng m⁻³. Hg/SO₂ mass ratios measu...
