The aim of this study is to evaluate the distribution of trace metals (Cr, Mn, Co, Zn, Cd, Pb) between the dissolved and the particulate phases in the Scheldt estuary. more

The rate of transfer of these elements between the two phases will furthermore be investigated by using radiotracers during incubation experiments carried out with Scheldt water. Special attention will be devoted to the role of biological activity in these transfer processes. The final goal is to evaluate the sources, sinks and fluxes of these metals in the estuarine system.
