Heavy Metals and Arsenic in Sediments , Mussels and Marine Water from Murano

  title={Heavy Metals and Arsenic in Sediments , Mussels and Marine Water from Murano},
  author={Lorenzino Giusti and Hao H. Zhang},
This paper describes a study of the trace element distribution in sediments, marine water and mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis of the Venetian Lagoon around the Island of Murano, an island with a long tradition of glassmaking. Trace elements analysed include Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Cr, Pb, Ni, Ag and As. Sediments are contaminated with Zn, Cu, Ag, As and Pb, with levels in the <2 m fraction that are likely to cause adverse biological effects to marine organisms. The pelite (<63 μm) is the main carrier… CONTINUE READING
