In order to develop a current inventory of metals contamination of Baltimore Harbor, sediment samples were collected at 176 stations and analyzed for Pb, Cu, Cr, Cd, Zn, Ni, Mn and Hg using atomic absorption spectrophotometry. Concentration levels were compared with levels found in another highly industrialized harbor complex, other estuarine systems and in Chesapeake Bay sediments geographically removed from the Harbor. Distribution patterns of various metals were related to industrial/municipal inputs. (Author)
