Mercury is a very serious environmental pollutant which is intensely studied by many researchers. China is a main producer and consumer of mercury. We have pursued extensive monitoring of atomic mercury using the differential absorption lidar (DIAL) technique, based on a newly constructed mobile monitoring system. Mercury levels in major cities (Guangzhou, Zhengzhou, Xi´a n) were measured, as well as in mercury mining areas in Wanshan, Guizhou province. Further, mercury emissions from the Emperor Qin Mausoleum in Xi´an were investigated together with archaeologists.
