ABSTRACT
The characteristic distributions of 12 metals (Al, Ti, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Sr, Cd and Pb) were investigated in surface sediments from a small river (Niitsu River) flowing through both urban and agricultural areas by comparison with those from the upper main stream (Nodai River). Among the investigated metals, the mean concentrations of Al, Cr, Fe, Zn, Cd and Pb in the Niitsu River were significantly higher than those in the Nodai River. The investigated sites can be characterized by the principal components 1-3.
