Measurement of Some Heavy Metals in Sediments from Two Great Rivers (Tajan and Neka) of Iran

M.R. Kalantari and A.G. Ebadi


In this study, determination of Pb, Cd and Zn was performed in sediment extracts of two great rivers in Mazandaran province (Iran) according to the Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry procedure in eight sites.from each river four sites selected (2 for test and 2 controls). The results showed higher concentrations of Zn, Pb and Cd in the test samples compared to that in the control in two rivers. Significant different in level of Pb, Cd and Zn was not seen between two rivers (p<0.05). At sample site Tajan, which was the first test sample taken. This study can be a alarm to researchers for more study about pollution of sediments in Mazandaran and finding proper methods for reducing and removing.
