Abstract
    Suspended sediment in the Rhine-Meuse estuary contained as little as one third of the trace metal content of the river-borne suspended matter. It is shown that the strong seawardly decreasing gradient in the trace metal content of the suspended particulate matter is not due to desorption processes, but can be explained simply by the mixing of river-borne and marine-derived suspended sediments.
