Abstract

In the framework of the J.R.C. Remote Sensing program "Coastal Transport of Pollutants" a large amount of marine water samples was collected during the 1984 and 1985 measurement campaigns in the North Adriatic Sea. The aim of the collection was to evaluate the correlation between the heavy metals such as Cd, Pb, Cu and the total suspended matter mapped and quantified by remote sensing techniques. The work presents, as result of analyses of the data, the statistical evaluation of the link between the total suspended matter and the elements cited below in the particulate phase. The data derived from the collection of samples in the major rivers of the northern Adriatic Basin, in 8 stations inside the river Po delta, in 7 stations in the estuarine area and in several offshore stations considered as pelagic. Finally the behaviours of the concentrations of the same elements in the dissolved phase, according to space and salinity variations are discussed.
