Abstract
    The capability of energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence was investigated for fast and simple chemical analysis of trace elements in sediments and particulate matter in sea water. Nuclepore 0.4 µm pore-size membranes are recommended as optimal filters for a straightforward collection of suspended material. The collection of suspended trace metals by filtration seemed to give a sufficiently homogeneous filter load (s % < 2.5). Data are presented on the concentrations of K, Ca, Ti, Cr, Mn, Fe, Ni, Br, Pb, Rb and Sr with a fair precision (s % <5.6) and accuracy.
