    Some like it hot: U of T PhD student’s research takes him to active volcano in New Zealand

    "The U of T Scarborough PhD candidate is working on developing passive air samplers that can monitor mercury concentrations in remote locations. Working under the supervision of U of T Scarborough Chemistry Professor Frank Wania and Associate Professor of Environmental Sciences Carl Mitchell, David McLagan is looking at monitoring mercury in the air since it can last in the atmosphere for around a year, can be transported great distances and is linked to a host of brain and nervous system disorders. ..."
