Abstract Hydrogeochemistry and distribution of Pb, As, Cd, Sn and Hg in soils ( n  = 53), sediments ( n  = 42) and surface waters ( n  = 51) of the tropical Terengganu River basin, northeast coast of Peninsular Malaysia, were investigated. The order of abundance of the elements in soils followed granite > metasedimentary > Quaternary deposit ≫ volcanic with slight enrichment as compared to the upper continental crust. Both soils and sediments registered the order of concentration of Pb > Sn… CONTINUE READING
