Contamination with As, Cd and Hg, their spatial and temporal distribution are reported from the coastal wetland sediments of the northern Beibu Gulf, South China Sea. The content of As, Cd, Hg and TOC in surface sediments is 8.1±5.8 μg g⁻¹, 0.08±0.14μg g⁻¹, 0.034±0.028 μg g⁻¹ and 0.45±0.39%, respectively. The mean sedimentation rates are 0.93-1.37 cm year… CONTINUE READING
