Abstract Anthropogenic trace-metal concentrations and inventories were studied on the Llobregat continental margin, from the Llobregat river mouth to the Foix submarine canyon. A prodelta sedimentary depocentre was identified along with a previously known canyon depocentre. Significant upward increases in trace-metal contents were detected in sediment cores of the prodelta and upper part of the canyon (down to 860 m depth). Metal enrichment factors ranged between 1.8 and 10 on the continental… CONTINUE READING
