This paper discussed the variabilities of trace metals (dissolved Fe, Mn, Cu, and Co) in a semi-enclosed Bay (Ariake Sea) that reflects the combined effect of water circulation and geochemically driven cycles in shaping the distribution of those metals.
In the complex and high dynamic system of a coastal area like the Ariake Sea those trace metals behave differentially. While dissolved Fe and Mn (hereafter denoted as d-Fe and d-Mn, respectively) were removed during estuarine mixing, dissolved Cu (d-Cu) showed additional input via intra-estuarine processes. We proposed that sedimentary fluxes supplied more d-Cu than other possible sources such as photodissolution of suspended particulate matter, groundwater discharge, and atmospheric deposition. On the other hand, the balance between input and removal of d-Co leads to its conservative pattern.
