Abstract

Concentrations of metals, i.e. As, Cd, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn were analysed in bottom deposits of a marine port in Ustka and within the adjacent beach sections. Metal concentrations within the port channel may be ordered in terms of increasing values as: Cd < As < Ni < Zn < Cu < Pb < Mn. Heavy metal concentrations detected in port sediments were much higher than those in beach deposits. Samples of surface waters were also collected from the port channel, harbour basins and nearby beaches and selected physico-chemical indexes were determined, including heavy metal concentrations.
