The trace metal pollution of sediments in Chaohu Lake, one of the most highly eutrophic lakes in East China, was investigated. Surface sediment (0-5 cm) samples were collected from 35 different positions and analyzed by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry to determine trace metal contents. Results showed that the mean content of trace metals was as follows: Cr, 85.09 mg kg(-1); Cu, 34.49 mg kg(-1); Ni, 26.46 mg kg(-1); Pb, 34.17 mg kg(-1) and Zn, 107.46 mg kg(-1). The trace… CONTINUE READING
