Arsenic, chromium, cobalt, copper, lead, nickel, vanadium and zinc distributions in surficial and core sediments of the marine basin between La Spezia and Livorno (Northern Tyrrhenian/Eastern Ligurian Seas, west-central Italy) have been investigated. Comparison of heavy metal distribution with grain size and mineralogical data allowed the identification of vast areas where the sediment fine fraction appears affected by heavy metal anthropogenic contamination. In the fine particulate As… CONTINUE READING
