Title: An interim report on the coastwatch bioaccumulation programme : metals
Author: Sarah White
Document Type: Monograph
The results of the 1980,1983,1991 and 1992 Coastwatch metal bioaccumulation programmes are presented for each metal, graphically along the coastlines to allow comparisons between sites. Year to year comparisons can be made between 1992 and 1991 but less confidently with the older data owing to likely differences in methods of collection, preparation and analysis. Between site differences within 1980 and 1983 are probably valid. The majority of 1991 and 1992 samples were analysed at Severn-Trent pic Laboratories, Coventry except the six Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) sites which were analysed at Welsh NRA Laboratory, Llanelli. Methods of collection and preparation were consistent for all sites.
