Learn more about APMMN

The Asia Pacific Mercury Monitoring Network (APMMN) is a cooperative effort to systematically monitor mercury in air and rainwater throughout the ASIA-Pacific Region. The network involves many different groups, including environmental ministries and federal government agencies, academic institutions, and scientific research and monitoring organizations.


  • Determine the status and trends in: concentrations of ambient air mercury species - Gaseous Oxidized Mercury (GOM), Particulate bound mercury (PBM2.5), Elemental mercury (GEM); and wet, dry and total atmospheric deposition of mercury.
  • Assist partners in developing their mercury monitoring and assessment capacity by providing training on multi-media (e.g., air, precipitation, water, sediment, biota) sampling and analytical methods, and best practices.
  • Provide a robust dataset for regional and global model input.
  • Share data and monitoring infromation among network partners.
