Geochemical Assessment of Metal Concentrations in Mangrove Sediments along Mumbai Coast , India

  title={Geochemical Assessment of Metal Concentrations in Mangrove Sediments along Mumbai Coast , India},
  author={Lina Fernandes and Dr. S. P. Ilangovan},
Two short sediment cores collected from mangrove areas of Manori and Thane creeks along Mumbai coast were analysed for sediment composition and metals (Fe, Mn, Cu, Pb , Co, Ni, Zn, Cr and V). The statistical analysis of Pearson correla tion matrix proved that there is a significant relationship between me tal concentration and finer grain size in Manori creek while poor cor relation was observed in Thane creek. Based on the enrichment factor, the present metal to background metal ratios clearly… CONTINUE READING
