The Pollution Status of Heavy Metals in the Surface Seawater and Sediments of the Tianjin Coastal Area, North China

Investigation of the concentrations of six common heavy metals in the Tianjin coastal area showed that Cd contamination occurred as a result of anthropogenic activities, including port transportation, mariculture, and metal fabrication along the coastal area, and it is necessary to control Cc contamination in the future to improve the quality of the marine environment in Bohai Bay.

Spatial distribution and ecological risk assessment of heavy metals in surface sediments from the northern Bohai Strait, China

The epicontinental seas to the east of China have become highly anthropogenically impacted due to rapid economic development in recent decades, resulting in various environmental problems, including

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

Distribution, Risk Assessment, and Sources of Trace Metals in Surface Sediments from the Sea Area of Macao, South China

Investigation of surface sediment samples from the Macao sea area showed that concentrations of Ag, Pb, Cu, Zn, and Cd were highest in the Inner Harbour, whereas Cr, Co, As, and Ni were mainly accumulated in the downstream area of the Maliuzhou Waterway and the eastern area of Macao International Airport.

The Pollution Level, Spatial and Temporal Distribution Trend and Risk Assessment of Heavy Metals in Bohai Sea of China

ABSTRACT Zhang, D.S.; Pei, S.S.; Duan, G.F.; Feng, X.B.; Zhang, Y.B., and Wu, J., 2020. The pollution level, spatial and temporal distribution trend and risk assessment of heavy metals in Bohai Sea



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.

Distribution and pollution assessment of heavy metals in surface sediment in Laizhou Bay

Laizhou Bay is a semi-enclosed bay of weak water exchange capacity,and the impact of the pollution is increasingly heavier for the rivers into the sea,therefore,understanding and discussing the
