The determination and distribution of particulate aluminum and iron in the costal waters of the Pacific Northwest
The simultaneous spectrophotometric analysis of aluminum and iron with a mixed reagent consisting of ferron and orthophenanthroline was used for the determination of these elements in particulate matter filtered from seawater. The aluminum associated with suspended clay minerals may be used as a sensitive measure of the distribution of runoff plumes in coastal areas. In the coastal waters of Washington and British Columbia, aluminum-rich runoff plumes were enriched also with particulate iron.
