Heavy metals and carbon isotope concentrations in recent Baltic Sea sediments, supplement to: Erlenkeuser, Helmut; Suess, Erwin; Willkomm, Horst (1974): Industrialization affects heavy metal and carbon isotope concentrations in recent Baltic Sea sediments.

Recent sediment cores of the western Baltic Sea were analyzed for heavy metal and carbon isotope contents. The sedimentation rate was determined from radiocarbon dates to be 1.4 mm/yr. The 'recent age' of the sediment was about 850 yr. Within the upper 20 cm of sediment, certain heavy metals became increasingly enriched towards the surface; Cd, Pb, Zn and Cu increased 7-, 4-, 3- and 2-fold, respectively, whereas Fe, Mn, Ni and Co remained unchanged....
