Presents an integrated chemical behavior of selected toxic metals: arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, mercury, and lead. All important processes that may affect their marine chemistry are discussed. Thermodynamic calculations are performed to propose the most probable route of chemical behavior. The published field data are critically reviewed and compared with the theoretical observations. In particular, metal concentrations in sediments and waters, solid phase formation and solubility control, chemical forms in seawater, and the effects of redox, adsorption, and the scavenging mechanism for each metal are discussed in detail.
