Using multi-element comparisons to discriminate between natural and anthropogenic post-depositional additions in estuarine sediments

Beavis, Fern Riva

Description

In most areas of the world, high population centres and heavy industry are located along river systems and provide a catchment wide source of heavy metal pollution along the length of the river system. These anthropogenically derived heavy metal pollutants enter the freshwater river systems and are transported downstream as part of the suspended sediment load. Such metals combine with the suspended sediment such that there is a higher concentration of heavy metals with the finer grained,...[Show more]
