The data are withheld from general circulation and disclosure but access may be obtained on a case-by-case basis through negotiation

Notes: Restrictions available at contact person

Description
The aims of the study are: - to better understand the biogeochemical processes influencing the immobilization and/or remobilization of metals in the sedimentary phase - to estimate possible fluxes of metals from the sediment to the aqueous phase more

Six sites in the Scheldt estuary, chosen as a function of bottom characteristics and salinity gradient, are studied seasonally. Instruments used : (1) GFAAS, Perkin Elmer; (2) ICP-MS, VG; (3) Auto analyzer, Technicon; (4) C/N analyzer, Carlo Erba
