Title: The distribution of metal industry wastes in intertidal sediments near Whyalla, in Upper Spencer Gulf, South Australia
Author: Harbison, Ina Patricia
Issue Date: 1981
School/Discipline: School of Social Sciences
Abstract: Intertidal sediments near the B.H.P. steelworks at Whyalla, on the west coast of Spencer Gulf, were analysed by Atomic Absorbtion spectrometry to determine sedimentary, geochemical, and biological factors controlling the distribution and mobility of metals in the nearshore environment. Selective extraction procedures were used in an attempt to distinguish metals likely to be available to biota under a range of surface water conditions, from the total metal content of sediments.
