Assessment of trace metal in macroalgae and sediment of the Sundarban mangrove estuary

Abstract: This study was carried out to assess the levels of trace metals (Fe, Zn, Mn and Cu) in the macroalgae and sediment of the Sundarban mangrove estuary in Bangladesh. In this connection, macroalgae, water and sediment samples were collected seasonally (pre-monsoon, monsoon and post-monsoon) for a year from the study area. The surface water of the estuary was found to be quite rich in NO 3 , PO 4 and NH 4 , which is more than that of the sediment pore water. Trace elements were determined using an atomic absorptio… Show more

“…Therefore, it is crucial to maintain the good status of surface water quality for sustainable development and safety to human health (Tripathi and Singal, 2019;Uddin et al, 2022a). However, in recent decades a continued deterioration in the quality of surface water is noticeable since surface water is more susceptible to pollutants from both natural and anthropogenic sources such as industrial sewages, disposed domestic waste, and irrigation drainage water (Asha et al, 2020;Rahman et al, 2021;Uddin et al, 2020aUddin et al, , 2022b. Recently, several studies have utilized the water footprint for identifying the sources of water pollutants.…”
