Figure 1. (a) Historical mercury production and consumption. Consumption has exceeded production since about 1990, with demand met by large supplies from government stockpiles and closed chlor-alkall plants, plus contributions from recycling (7). (b) Mercury and gold prices in the United States from 1900 to 2005, adjusted to constant 2005 US dollars (USD). The correlation between gold and mercury prices begins after 1971 with the breakdown of a fixed exchange rate system (7-9).

- Thomas H. Harter
Associate Specialist, Groundwater Hydrology Cooperative Extension, Environmental Sciences, College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences, University of California, Davis, 1995 - Current
Research Interests: Flow and transport processes in ground water and in the vadose zone; stochastic analysis of such processes in heterogeneous porous systems; numerical modeling; assessment and remediation of ground water contamination; nonpoint source pollution of ground water; geostatistics.
His research focuses on nonpoint-source pollution of groundwater, groundwater resources evaluation under uncertainty, groundwater modeling, and contaminant transport. Dr. Harter's research group has done extensive modeling, laboratory, and field work to evaluate the impacts of agriculture and human activity on groundwater flow and contaminant transport in complex aquifer and soil systems.
