Interelement ratios to Cr in surface samples of coastal sediments and watershed soils of Oah'u, Hawai'i, show widespread, anomalous concentrations of Pb, Cd, and Hg when compared with basalt, the ubiquitous rock type. Enrichments of these heavy metals are especially pronounced in the carbonate sands of Kahana, Maunalua, and Mamala Bays, where enrichment factors for Pb, Cd, and Hg range from 84 to 240, 67 to 180, and 43 to 72, respectively, based on samples collected in the early 1970s.

Spatial Variation of Metals In Bed Sediments of an Urban Drainage Basin, HawaII
Fish from Manoa Stream, Hawaii, have consistently shown the highest Pb concentrations and some of the highest Cu contents in nation-wide surveys by the National Contaminant Biomonitoring Program
Effects of Urbanization on the Heavy Metal Concentrations in the Red Sea Coastal Sediments, Egypt
The total concentrations of heavy metals (Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, Fe, Mn, Ni and Co) were determined in surface sediments from the coastal area of the Red Sea in four cities (Ras-Gharib, Hurghada, Safaga,
Contamination of Nearshore Surficial Sediments from the Iranian Coast of the Caspian Sea
Concentrations of heavy metals (Al, Cd, Cu, Pb, Ni, Zn) were analyzed from nearshore surficial sediments collected from the alongshore direction of the Iranian coast of the Caspian Sea. The
Metal pollution in marine sediments of selected harbours and industrial areas along the Red Sea coast of Egypt
A study of the geochemistry and texture of marine surface-sediments in selected areas along the Red Sea coast was conducted in order to assess the possible influence of human activities on the
Analysis of Marine Sediments Collected in Cook ’ s Bay , Mo ’ orea , French Polynesia
Sediments can act as a major pollutant reservoir for heavy metals that will often bioaccumulate through the food chain. To determine background concentrations of heavy metals in marine sediments, as
Geochemical proxy of some chemical elements in sediments of Kemaman River Estuary, Terengganu, Malaysia
The concentrations of heavy metals (Mn, Co, Cu and Cr) were determined in the surface sediments from Kemaman River estuary using Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). The
A geochemical and statistical approach for assessing heavy metal pollution in sediments from the southern Caspian coast
The nearshore marine environment of the Caspian sea is a major repository for toxic metals originating from various sources. Since the persistent toxic metals pose serious health risks this research

TLDR
Evidence for both exclusion and concentration behavior was obtained in the Alaska-New England group and brief consideration was also given to Hg distribution in a plant-animal-soil community.
