S. MANJAPPA AND E.T. PUTTAIAH

Abstract

An attempt has been made in the present study to evaluate trace metals such as Fe, Mn, Cr, Zn, Cu, Pb, Cd, Al and Hg in the Bhadra river bed sediments from four identified stations at monthly intervals for a period of two years from March 1999 to February 2001. The results of the analysis showed that trace metals in the river bed sediments are well within the Shale standards. Trace metals in the order of their relative dominal were in the sequence Fe > Al > Mn > Zn > Pb > Cr > Cu > Ni > Cd > Hg.
