Congratulations Dr. Lekh and HERI team,

A new article entitled "Concentration and risk assessments of mercury along the elevation gradient in soils of Langtang Himalayas Nepal" is published on Human and Ecological Risk Assessment: An International Journal. The research established the background value of mercury for the Himalayan soil which could be used for the further evaluation and calculation of Igeo, EF, and PI for water, soil,and aerosol in the Himalayan region as background reference value.
