Pollution, risks, and sources of heavy metals in sediments from the urban rivers flowing into Haizhou Bay, China
The Haizhou Bay in eastern China, for a long time, is seriously polluted with heavy metals (HMs) due to intensive anthropic pressure. The river runoff is the dominant pathway of HM transport in the
Environmental Quality and Ecological Risk Assessment of Heavy Metals in the Zhuhai Coast, China
The rapid urbanization and industrialization in the coastal Zhuhai have resulted in severe heavy metal contamination. Heavy metals are extensively used as indicators of coastal contamination, but the
Arsenic (As) contamination in sediments from coastal areas of China.
Spatial distribution and source apportionment of metals in sediments of Meriç-Ergene Basin, Turkey
The present study is aimed to detect and evaluate metal accumulation in the sediments of Meriç-Ergene Basin, which is an industry-intensive area in Turkey. Ten metals and Total Organic Carbon (TOC)
Source apportionment of heavy metals in sediments of the urban rivers flowing into Haizhou Bay, Eastern China: using multivariate statistical analyses and Pb-Sr isotope fingerprints
Pb-Sr isotopes illustrated that anthropogenic inputs were the dominant source for HMs in urban river sediments flowing into Haizhou Bay, and the isotope tracing results make up the discriminating deficiency of the multivariate statistical analysis.
Influence of heavy metals on Saunders’s Gull (Saundersilarus saundersi) reproduction in the Yellow River Estuary: risk assessment and bioaccumulation
The heavy metal migration in the food chain exerted significant influence on the survival and reproduction of wetland birds and then disturbed and threatened the balance and health of the estuary
Investigation of heavy metals on water quality and sediment: A case study Bireuen, Aceh Utara and Lhokseumawe City
Environmental pollution around the world in the last 10 years has continued to increase with increasing industrial growth. Environmental pollution has reduced the availability of clean water. Clean


Heavy metal in surface sediments of the Liaodong Bay, Bohai Sea: distribution, contamination, and sources
Multivariate analysis indicated that the sources of Cr, Ni, Zn, Cu, and Hg resulted primarily from parent rocks, and Pb or As were mainly attributed to anthropogenic sources, which would provide a useful aid for sustainable marine management in the region.
Distributions and sources of heavy metals in sediments of the Bohai Sea, China: a review
In the 1980s and recent years, higher concentrations of Zn, Cd, and Pb were measured in the samples collected from Bohai Bay and Liaodong Bay, respectively, indicating that the sources of heavy metals in Bohai Sea were changed significantly during the past decades.
