Abstract

With urbanization and economic development in coastal area, metal pollution incoastal environment has been a problem. Estuaries and coastal intertidal zone areimportant habitats for aquatic and marine life. In the meantime, sediment is a repositoryof contaminants and records the pollution history. Sediment quality reflects the long-termhealth status of an estuarine or coastal system and can be evaluated by sediment qualityguidelines/criteria, metal enrichment factors and other indicators. In this study, wesummarize the results mainly from our previous studies in metal pollution in sediments inurban estuarine and coastal systems in US and China, including New York Harbor andYangtze River estuary in metropolitan areas and Xiamen Bay and Jiaozhou Bay. Theinformation from this study expands our knowledge in understanding metal pollution inurban coastal systems and assessing environmental quality impacted by industrializationand economic development.
