Environmental Quality Assessment of Seawater and Sediment in Futou Bay, Southeast China

Siting Chen, Weili Wang, Qingsheng Li

Abstract

In December 2014, the quality of seawater and sediments in Futou Bay was investigated. The results showed that the main pollutants in seawater were dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN), and its concentration ranged from 0.294 to 0.369 mg/L. The active phosphate (PO4-P) concentration met the second class of Seawater Quality Standard. Other parameters were all within the first class of Seawater Quality Standard. The waters in study area have reached the eutrophication state, and nitrogen (N) is a limiting factor. The parameters in the sediments all met the first class of Sediment Quality Standard. Correlation analysis showed that increased nitrate nitrogen (NO3-N) will reduce dissolved oxygen (DO) in the sea. Oil in seawater, mercury and arsenic in sediments may not come from terrestrial.
