Heavy metals in the seas of Europe : Oceanographic project of CERBOM
The project ADRIA 86 was organised by collaboration between C.E.R.B.O.M. at Nice and JRC at Ispra. The aim of the project was to gather a large quantity of facts of physical, chemical and biological nature with particular attention to pollutants of anthropological origin, in the Adriatic Sea. C.E.R.B.O.M., in earlier years, have conducted a series of oceanographic projects directed towards the distribution of heavy metals in the whole of the Mediterranean and in a large part of the seas around Europe, relating the physical and chemical data to the biological data gathered in the same areas. The Adriatic Sea has only in part been the subject of earlier investigations. The JRC intended to study simultaneously the correlation between the optical (transparency and water colour) parameters and the chemical (chlorophyll, nutrient salts) and physical (particles in suspension) data to verify results previously achieved in this sea by earlier projects.
