Abstract

The determination of heavy metals (Cu, Cd, Co, Mn and Ni) in 4 locations of sediments of north zone Basrah were achieved by means of Atomic Absorption spectroscopy were determined in sediments samples . The results showed that the higher concentrations of Cu were (14.42 µg/gm)at station (4), Cd (19.596 µg /gm) at Station (1) , Co (24.309 µg/gm) at station (2) , Mn(111.577 µg/gm) at station (1) , and Ni (207.319µg/gm) at station (2) . The sediment pollution with heavy metals thought to be due to different sources such as urban wastes , industrial of different sources such as urban wastes , industrial effluents , land washout and boatsactivates
