    Abstract

    This paper presents findings from two linked studies which examine the relationship between heavy metals and mineral magnetic characteristics of sediments in a polluted urban lake and deposited dusts in Coventry, UK. The first study found no relationship between the two sets of properties in the urban lake sediments. The second shows that there is a relationship in <2 mm street dusts, but not in the <63 μm fraction. Chemical and physical changes during transport and deposition, and the ecosystem specific sources of sediment may offer explanations for these differences.
