Contents Notes
Concentrations of trace metals in San Diego Bay are similar to concentrations in lower South San Francisco Bay, but San Diego Bay has not received any sewage discharges since 1964. Data evaluation reaches preliminary conclusion that levels of copper and other metals are largely determined by concentrations of those metals in sediments, which can remain relatively highly concentrated in pollutants decades after discharges cease.
