Nelson O'Driscoll and students at SETAC, Helsinki
In May, Dr. Nelson O'Driscoll travelled to Helsinki, Finland, to the annual Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) conference. Nelson presented a poster on "Temporal Changes in Dissolved Elemental Mercury at a Coastal Aquaculture Site in the Grado Lagoon, Northern Italy". Recent graduate, now MSc candidate, Rachel Clarke travelled with him and displayed her poster on "Salinity Influences in Mercury Photochemistry in Estuarine Rivers in the Minas Basin, Nova Scotia". Also present was Sara Klapstein, who has been working with Nelson in a post-doc, investigating sources of mercury from epiphytic lichens in Nova Scotia.
