Multivariate analyses to determine the origin of potentially harmful heavy metals in beach and dune sediments from KizKalesi Coast (Mersin), Turkey
The aim of this study was to investigate variations in heavy metal concentrations and natural and artificial sources of heavy minerals in beach and dune sediments along Kizkalesi (Mersin) coast in Turkey. To this aim, sand ...
Heavy metals uptake from aqueous solutions using marine algae (Colpomenia sinuosa): kinetics and isotherms
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2012)
The adsorption of copper, zinc, cobalt, lead and cadmium ions onto Colpomenia sinuosa was studied as a function of contact time, initial metal ion concentration and initial pH. In addition, desorption studies were performed. ...
Adsorption characteristics of heavy metals in soil zones developed on spilite
Various soil zones such as Bw, C1, and C3 are developed on spilite. Montmorillonite, vermiculite and chlorite is moderately occurred in the C1 and C3 soil zones, in contrast montmorillonite and vermiculite are absent in ...
Geostatistical conditional simulation for the assessment of contaminated land by abandoned heavy metal mining
Abandoned mine workings can undoubtedly cause varying degrees of contamination of soil with heavy metals such as lead and zinc has occurred on a global scale. Exposure to these elements may cause to harm human health and ...
