Presence and distribution of heavy metals in the city channels of the historical centre of Venice
The present work, performed in cooperation between JRC Ispra and UNESCO focused in the investigation of the sediment contamination status of the city channels of Venice in view of the foreseen dredging and the storage and deposition of the dredged sediments. Twenty-one sediment samples from fourteen selected channels were taken in 1992 by sediment corer. All samples were analysed for the most critical metals, nutrient and matrix elements. The analytical data obtained have been classified according to the Guidelines of the Italian Ministry of Environment.
