Abstract The distribution and accumulation of sulfur and trace metals in surface sediments in the submarine hydrothermal field of Kueishantao islet off northeastern Taiwan were investigated. The discharge of fluid from yellow vents and certain white vents had high concentrations of dissolved hydrogen sulfide (280–3742 μM) and trace metals (i.e. Al: 4.40–210 μM; Fe: 0.024–17.6 mM; Mn: 0.0002–12.8 mM; Ni: 4.82–54.9 nM; Zn: 0.002–2.32 μM) which resulted in sediments with varying sulfur and metal… CONTINUE READING
