In this study, four sampling stations were selected from two locates on the Tigris river (Baghdad region) and others on the Euphrates river (Al-Anbar Governorate) in order to determine concentrations, seasonal variation and pollution intensity assessment of heavy metals (Ni, Cu, Pb, Mn and Cd) in the two rivers sediments. Distribution of studied metals showed that stations in the Tigris river generally had higher concentrations than stations in Euphrates river. Manganese was found at high… CONTINUE READING
