This study establishes a baseline for trace metal speciation in Qarun and Wadi El-Rayan lakes. A five-step sequential extraction procedure was applied for the speciation of the Fe, Mn, Zn, and Cu in sediment samples collected at Qarun and Wadi El-Rayan lakes. Mn and Cu were the most mobile metals, whereas the residue fraction maintained the highest… CONTINUE READING
