Contents Notes
Measured total and extractable metals concentrations in background soil, roadside soil, and road sediment in the Manoa, Hawaii watershed. Found that copper, lead, and zinc concentrations were anthropogenically enhanced. Copper concentrations exceeded background (background for the watershed), but the paper notes that copper data in the study watershed are somewhat difficult to interpret because background copper levels are 4.6 to 8 time greater that typical crustal values. Examined potential linkage of elevated lead concentrations near roads and elevated lead concentrations in fish in the watershed, finding strong circumstantial evidence that the two concentrations are linked.
