ABSTRACT

The concentrations of organic matter, carbonate, total phosphorous, and some heavy metals (iron, manganese, zinc, copper, cadmium, cobalt, lead, nickel and chromium) were determined for sediment samples collected from near shore stations on Al-Gabal Al- Akhder coast during summer 2008. The results showed that, the high levels of heavy metals were recorded at regions which receive high effluents from brackish water.
