Extent of heavy metal contamination in Chilika Lake was assessed to conserve the eco-dynamics of the lake. Distribution of heavy metals, cations and total organic carbon were analysed in the sediment samples collected from three sites that represent a salinity gradient. Analysis of environmental indices, viz. enrichment and contamination factors, geo-accumulation (Igeo) and pollution load indices showed that the concentrations of Cd and Hg were significantly high with geoaccumulation index… CONTINUE READING
