Concentrations gradients of Ba, Cd, Cr, Cu, Mn, Pb, Sr, and Zn in surficial sediments at platform structures are not related to the hydrated iron fraction of the sediments or the sediment grain size. This suggests these metals have an input that is related to the platform structures or petroleum production activities. There are seasonal variation in the concentration and distribution of these metals in the sediments near the platform structures. Produced brine samples contain higher concentrations of Ba, Cr, Fe, Mn and Sr relative to sea water. Seasonal variations in heavy metal concentrations in sheepshead and spadefish are not necessarily related to the platform structures.
