Abstract

Records of atmospheric and catchment derived heavy metal pollution are contained in sediments accumulating in lakes and reservoirs. Two problems exist in utilizing the lake sediment record as proxy hydrological data. The first concerns accurate quantification of heavy metal flux through time; the second relates to the methods which might be used to distinguish the atmospheric and fluvial derived metal influx to the lake sediment. This paper considers these problems in relation to Zn enriched lake sediments in three regions of the UK.
