Dissolved trace metal distributions in Port Jackson estuary (Sydney Harbour), Australia.
Concentrations of dissolved metals (Cd, Cu, Ni, Mn and Zn) were determined for summer and winter, under low-flow conditions in Port Jackson, a microtidal, well-mixed estuary in south-east Australia.Expand

Kinetics of trace element uptake and release by particles in estuarine waters: effects of pH, salinity, and particle loading.
The uptake and release of 109Cd, 51Cr, 60Co, 59Fe, 54Mn, and 65Zn were studied using end-member waters and particles from Port Jackson estuary, Australia. The kinetics of adsorption and desorptionExpand

Influence of proximity to an urban center in the pattern of contamination by marine debris.
In order to test the relationship between the occurrence of marine debris and the distance from urban areas, nine beaches in the metropolitan area of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil and the adjacent northernExpand

Spatial and Temporal Variability of Particulate Trace Metals in Port Jackson Estuary, Australia
Abstract Major elements (Al, Ca, Fe and Mn) and trace elements (Cu, Cr, Pb, Zn and Ni) in operationally defined available and total particulate phases have been determined along an axial transect ofExpand

Overview of the 20th century impact of trace metal contamination in the estuaries of Todos os Santos Bay: past, present and future scenarios.
This paper discusses the distribution patterns of trace metals in sediments and suspended particulate matter (SPM) in the three main estuaries of the Todos os Santos Bay (BTS), Brazil, during dry andExpand
