Forty sediment samples and fifteen water samples were collected from the Gulf of Thermaikos and the Bay of Thessaloniki in order to determine the concentration of Zn, Cu, Pb and Cr and measure various seawater parameters. The level of pollution attributed to heavy metals was evaluated using several pollution indicators in order to determine anthropogenically derived sediment contamination. Enrichment Factors, Contamination Factors, Modified Contamination Degree, and Geoaccumulation Indexes for… CONTINUE READING
