Methylmercury (MeHg) concentrations in freshwater fish from southeastern Norway continue to increase, highlighting the need for a comprehensive understanding of MeHg sources, cycling, and degradation in the aquatic environment. The authors assessed the importance of photodemethylation in the MeHg budget of 4 Norwegian lakes. Photodemethylation rates were determined using incubation experiments with MeHg-spiked natural lake water. The authors determined full-spectrum exposure rates at all study sites and waveband-specific rates (photosynthetically active radiation, ultraviolet-A radiation, and ultraviolet-B radiation) at 1 clear-water (Sognsvann) and 1 humic (Langtjern) site. No significant differences in photodemethylation rates between the sites were found, and the authors' observed rates agreed with available literature for lake and wetland waters. The authors paired experimentally derived photodemethylation rates with lake-specific incident irradiation, light attenuation, and MeHg concentrations to estimate MeHg loss through photodemethylation for the study sites. For Langtjern, losses through photodemethylation equalled 27% of total annual inputs, highlighting the importance of photodemethylation in the MeHg budget. Furthermore, the authors assessed how changes in terrestrial dissolved organic carbon (DOC) exported to freshwaters and climate-driven reductions in ice cover duration may affect MeHg losses through photodemethylation. Results suggest that future increases in DOC may lead to higher aqueous MeHg concentrations in boreal lakes due to increased DOC-associated MeHg inputs paired with significant decreases in the loss of MeHg through photodemethylation due to increased light attenuation.
