  • The concentration of some heavy metals, Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Pb, Cd, Cr, Ni, Hg, and total hydrocarbon content (THC) were assessed in the surface waters of a Niger Delta mangrove creek (Buguma Creek). Samples were collected between November 2004 and October 2006 from five stations. The minimum and maximum concentrations of these heavy metals in the creek were 7.21- 228.5 mg/l for Ca, 51.18-428.3 mg/l for Mg, 0.01-6.78 mg/l for Fe, 0.010-0.43 mg/l for Zn, 0.01-0.61 for Pb, 0.01-0.11 for Cd, 0.01-1.49… CONTINUE READING
