Abstract
    Field observations have shown that the removal of a substantial proportion of the riverine influx of dissolved trace metals is a consistent feature of the very low salinity, high turbidity zone of the Tamar Estuary. Comparison of field data with the predictions of a simple sorptive equilibrium model indicates that the removal occurs through rapid uptake onto suspended particles comprising the estuarine turbidity maximum. The maintenance of relative depletion of exchangeable trace metals on this particle population is attributable to internal cycling of resuspendable particles within the estuary
