Contents Notes
Used isotope analysis to investigate lead sources in San Francisco Bay sediments, finding that leaded gasoline was the major source of lead. Mass balance calculation and isotopic analysis suggest that much of the lead deposited in San Francisco Bay watershed from gasoline remains in the watershed system. The authors conclude that historic gasoline lead deposits may remain in the watershed system for decades.
