Keywords:geochemistry, geoecology, ecology, mercury, heavy metals, anthropogenic pollution, natural sources, Arctic and Far Eastern seas
The mercury content in the bottom sediments of the East Siberian, Laptev, Chukchi seas and the adjacent part of the Arctic Ocean was studied. The dependence of its contents on the granulometric composition of sediments and redox conditions of bottom waters is established, which generally manifests itself as the bathymetric zonality of the distribution.
