Heavy metals in the surface sediments of Zhushan Bay mainly distribute in the west bank and the estuaries of Taige canal, Yincun Port, and Huanshan River,and Cd pollution is relatively serious. The relative enrichment in the HFSE, Y, REE, Th and U, besides the depletion in the heavy metals may suggest that the beach sediments of the study area are strongly imparted by felsic sources such. Mar 17,  · Eight sediment cores recovered from Tamaki Estuary were analysed for Cu, Pb, Zn, and Cd using downward cored sub-samples. The results indicate a significant upward enrichment in heavy metals with the highest concentrations found in the uppermost 0–10 cm layer. Assessment of heavy metal pollution in marine sediments requires knowledge of pre-anthropogenic metal concentrations to Cited by: Jan 24,  · The competitive adsorption and the release of selected heavy metals and their speciation distribution before and after adsorption in the Yellow River sediments are discussed. The adsorption of metals onto sediments increases with increasing pH value and decreases with increasing ionic cyrusofficial.com by:

ABSTRACT: This study was carried out to assess the level of heavy metals pollution in Ologe Lagoon, Agbara, Lagos, Nigeria. The Lagoon receives effluents from industries in the Agbara Industrial Estate. Cored Soft sediments were retrieved from six random sampling points within the Lagoon and labeled (S1, S2, S3, S4, S5 and S6). The composition of trace metals (Cd, Cu, Zn, Fe, Mn, Cr and Pb) in the sediments of the intertidal zone of ship breaking area of the north east coast of the Bay of Bengal has been determined using Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. The mean values of trace metals are μg.g‾ 1 for Cd, μg.g‾ 1 I for Cu, μg.g‾ 1 for Zn, μg.g‾ 1 for Fe, μg.g‾ 1.
