Welcome to the webpage of the Mason Mercury Lab in the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Connecticut. Mason also has a joint appointment in Chemistry. Current research is focused on the fate, transport, and transformation of mercury and other metals and metalloids in aquatic systems and the atmosphere. The scope of this research includes the open ocean, the coastal zone and estuaries, as well as freshwater systems, with much of the current studies focusing on coastal ecosystems. The research is examining the important transformation processes in the sediment and water (methylation, demethylation, redox transforamtions) and their interfaces (sediment/water and air/sea), focusing on how these impact bioavailability and bioaccumulation of mercury into aquatic organisms. See Research and Completed Projects for more details of our research. Follow on: Twitter - @Robmazin2; ResearchGate; Google Scholar
