The MN Pollution Control Agency and the MN Dept. of Health have done a lot of work in this area. In fact, they have a black Labrador Retriever named Clancy trained to sniff out mercury vapor that they take to schools both for demonstration and testing purposes. (They also have mercury vapor meters - I figured I best include that note as well.)
