The Distribution and Seasonal Variation of Dissolved Trace Metals in Florida Bay and Adjacent Waters
Entry ID: RSMAS_FJM_002

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Florida Bay is a shallow carbonate estuary in South Florida. It receives fresh
waters from the Everglades that contribute a number of metals to the Bay. The
Bay is the largest estuary in Florida with nearly pristine conditions. In this
paper we report the first extensive study of trace metals in the Bay. The
seasonal distributions of trace metals (Sc, V, Cr, Co, Cu, Fe, Pb, Mn, Ni and
Al) were ... View entire text

Quality Trace metal concentrations were determined with 95% confidence level using
Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy ICP-MS (4500 HP). Total Fe was
measured using the chemiluminescence technique with a system that has a
precision of 0.8 nm. All samples were taken from surface waters.
