Contents Notes
Describes the chemical processes that control bioavailablity of metals like copper in San Francisco Bay. Documents how sulfides in sediments (as well as dissolved organic substances) play a role in controlling speciation of copper in San Francisco Bay. Presents initial benthic flux (release of copper from sediments) measurement for dissolved copper.
