[AHW27-P01] Transportation and precipitation characteristics of toxic element in river and its bottom sediment in Asama-yama area
3-min talk in an oral session
Keywords:toxic trace element, bottom sediment, river
In this study, in order to clarify the mechanism for transportation, precipitation and concentration of toxic trace elements in a water system, river waters and bottom sediments were sampled at 18 points in a small river of Asama-yama volcanic mountain area. From the correlation between major elements and toxic trace elements, major attracter elements are found in a river. The following conclusions are obtained: 1) The toxic trace elements (Cu, Pb, Co, Sr) in bottom sediments are with compatible major attracter elements; K2O for (Cu,Pb), (T-Fe2O3) for Co, Al2O3 for Sr, 2) The toxic trace elements (Cu, Pb) in river waters are with compatible major attracter elements; (Al, Ti) coloid for (Cu, Pb), 3) No attractor for Sr in river water, 4) Fe-colloid is a attractor of (Al, Ti) in river water.
From the described above, it is modeled that first, (Cu,Pb) are transported by Fe-colloid, that is attractor of (Al,Ti), second, Fe-Al-Ti-colloid precipitate with (Cu, Pb), third, (Cu, Pb) are attracted by K2O, and move to bottom sediment, finally, Fe-Al-Ti-colloid released (Cu, Pb) moves from bottom sediment to river water. These processes are repeated, and (Cu, Pb) are move from water to bottom sediment. Co will move with Fe-colloid, because Fe-colloid is a compatible attractor of Co.
