Heavy metals and arsenic content in water along the southern Caspian coasts in Iran
Spatial distribution of heavy metal concentrations showed that Gorgan Bay is an ecosystem serving as a filter, trapping natural and anthropogenic materials that are brought from industrial, commercial, and urbanized areas.
First investigation of trace metal distribution in surface seawater and copepods of the south coast of Sfax (Tunisia)
Comparative studies with those from the Luza zone indicate considerable bioaccumulation of trace metals (Pb and Ni) in all copepod groups namely in cyclopoida.
Assessment of the ecological and human health risks from metals in shrimp aquaculture environments in Central Java, Indonesia
The results suggest that the majority of metals have higher concentrations in the inlet followed by the outlet and ponds, while the hazard index values for metals indicated that consuming shrimp would not have adverse effects on human health.
Distribution, Source and Risk Assessment of Heavy Metal(oid)s in Water, Sediments, and Corbicula Fluminea of Xijiang River, China
The results indicated that Cu, Cd, and Zn were the most prone to bio-accumulation in the Corbicula fluminea soft tissue, and the lower reaches showed a much higher pollution level and risk than the upper reaches.
Metal and metallothionein levels in zooplankton in relation to environmental exposure: spatial and temporal variability (Saronikos Gulf, Greece)
Metal levels in zooplankton and MTs were higher at sites influenced by human-derived pressures, and metal concentrations in pelagic fish flesh from the Greek MED-POL data base were used for bioconcentration and biomagnification factors calculation.
Arsenic and Trace Metals in Three West African rivers: Concentrations, Partitioning, and Distribution in Particle-Size Fractions
Despite increasing mining activities, and fertilizer and pesticide use in agriculture, little information is available on the status of metal(loid) contamination in rivers in West Africa. Sixty water


Seasonal variation of heavy metals in coastal water of the Coromandel coast, Bay of Bengal, India
Enrichment of heavy metals contaminations were more in the Coromandel coast, when compared to other marine environs of the Indian coast and also compared to natural seawater level, substantiated by a highly significant positive correlation between concentrations ofheavy metals in seawater and nutrients.
Trace metal concentrations in marine zooplankton from the western Bay of Bengal
The average concentration of Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Cd and Pb in zooplankton from the Bay of Bengal indicates that it is slightly enriched in coastal samples than offshore samples, while the heavy river discharge in the east coast of India might be related to the increased metal bioavailabilities in seawater and hence an increased uptake of metals by zoopbodies from coastal areas than offshore areas.
Heavy Metal Contamination and Risk Assessment in the Marine Environment of Arabian Sea, along the Southwest Coast of India
Marine ecosystem is being threatened by the discharge of untreated sewage wastes and industrial effluents which ultimately affects the sustainability of living resources and public health. These
Distribution of particulate trace metals in the western Bay of Bengal
. Samples from 24 stations comprising inshore and offshore of the western Bay of Bengal have been analysed for particulate trace metals, total suspended matter (TSM) and particulate organic carbon
Trace metal dynamics in zooplankton from the Bay of Bengal during summer monsoon
Zooplankton showed a great capacity for accumulations of trace metals, with average concentration factors of 4 867 929 ± 569 971, 246 757 ± 51 321, 337 180 ± 125 725, 43 480 ± 11 212, and 15 420 ± 9201 for Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Cd, and Pb with respect to dissolved concentrations in coastal and offshore waters of the Bay of Bengal.
Seasonal variations in physico-chemical parameters and heavy metals in water and sediments of Uppanar estuary, Nagapattinam, India.
The present study was carried out to determine the physico-chemical characteristics and heavy metals in water and sediments in Uppanar Estuary, Nagapattinam, Southeast coast of India during January
