Mercury content in sediments obtained from Razdol'naya River, Vtoraya Rechka and Amur Bay, supplement to: Polyakov, D M; Aksentov, KI; Ivanov, M V (2008): Mercury in the bottom sediments of the marginal filter of the Razdol'naya River, Amur Bay. Geochemistry International, 46(6), 614-621


Estuaries are transitional zones between continents and oceans. In terms of geochemistry, they comprise an extremely important geochemical barrier, which separates areas with different conditions of the sedimentation environment (hydrodynamic, physicochemical, biogeochemical, etc.). This results in a sharp change in the intensity of migration of a certain group of chemical elements, their concentrations, and migration forms. The migration forms of an element are controlled, not only by its occurrence in either dissolved or suspended states, but also its affinity for a particular suspended fraction and sorption properties. Fine suspended fractions may serve as an active form of migration and control the migration capacity of an element.
