Description / Abstract: The aim of this study was to determine the capacity of mangrove sediment to desorb (release) or adsorb (bind) metals under simulated natural conditions. Specifically the study was designed to:  Determine the potential for sediment to release metals and arsenic and to provide a risk assessment with reference to ecosystem quality guidelines  Determine the capacity of sediment to adsorb elevated levels of mobile metals and arsenic in a hypothetical pollution event  Measure metal distribution coefficients (Kd-values) for solid/liquid exchange of metals and arsenic for use in geochemical and hydrodynamic modelling of metal mobility
This research was funded by the INPEX-led Ichthys LNG Project.
