Sažetak
Trace elements and organic carbon inputs to the Mediterranean Sea from an urbanised area (Marseille City) were studied and characterised during flood events. Inputs were brought to the sea by two small coastal rivers whose waters were mixed together and also with treated wastewaters (TWW) just before discharge. The monitoring of the rivers during flood events showed the high temporal dynamics of water flow, suspended particulate matter (SPM), organic carbon and trace metals concentrations, typical of small coastal Mediterranean rivers and requiring an appropriate sampling strategy. Dissolved/particulate partition coefficient (log Kd) in rivers during floods remained quasi-constant for a given trace element, but differed from one element to another according to their affinity toward particles. Because of high SPM concentrations, trace elements were mainly brought to the sea during floods as particles, despite a weaker affinity for particles when compared to baseflow conditions for all studied elements but Pb. If the contribution of TWW dominated the elements baseflow discharge to the coastal zone, rivers outweighed during floods. When discharged to the sea, most trace elements underwent partial desorption in the salinity gradient, especially at highest salinity. Laboratory desorption experiment results were consistent with field data and showed slower desorption kinetics than in baseflow conditions, suggesting that trace elements desorption rates from particles are slower than sedimentation rates. With regard to heavy particles, it results in a potential impact of the sediment on benthic organisms and a possible further desorption after sediment resuspension events. With regard to light particles, it results to a possible additional desorption during offshore transport
