Trace metal cycling in the Whau Estuary, Auckland, New Zealand.

Ellwood, Michael; Wilson, Peter; Vopel, Kay; Green, Malcolm


Dissolved Zn, Cd, Cu, Fe, and Pb concentrations were measured along a salinity gradient in the Whau Estuary, Auckland, New Zealand. We found a mid-salinity maximum in dissolved Zn and Cd concentrations, consistent with significant loss of these metals from the particulate phase into the dissolved phase. Changes in the chemical speciation of these two metals were coupled to changes in salinity and this was the major driver for Zn and Cd loss from particulate material. Contrastingly, Cu...[Show more]
