Abstract

Based on the investigation data of Hg in Jiaozhou Bay in May, August and October of 1991, according to the horizontal and vertical distribution of Hg content, the difference of Hg at surface and bottom disclosed that the Hg content and transport time influenced the variation of Hg content at surface and bottom and the sedimentation area. The results showed that in bay center, there was no source to transport Hg content in May and 0.081μg/L of Hg content was transported from atmospheric sedimentation in August. In eastern nearshore waters, 0.041μg/L of Hg content was transported from ships and wharfs in May and there was no source in August. Spatially, different sources presented the spatial variation of Hg content. Specifically, in May, in eastern nearshore waters, Hg content at surface was less than that at bottom, decreasing to the bay center along with the gradients. In August, in bay center, Hg content at surface was less than that at bottom, decreasing to eastern nearshore waters along with the gradients. Temporally, at different time, the sources changed. From May to August, in bay center, from no source to atmospheric sedimentation, there was no Hg content at seafloor, so Hg content at surface was more than that at bottom. Whereas, in nearshore waters, Hg content was transported by ships and wharfs all the time, causing a great number of Hg content at seafloor, so Hg content at surface was less than that at bottom. Therefore, the spatial and temporal variation of Hg content disclosed that the Hg content accumulated in seafloor was decided by the time of transporting Hg content, not contrary.
