Abstract

Freshwater. Water plays fundamental functions in processes both geochemical and biochemical. It is also a main carrier for all chemical elements; its amount and chemical composition control element cycling in water-air-soil systems. Thus, water is probably the most studied medium that governs the forms of trace elements of which investigated Cr, Se, Cu, As, Pb, Cd, and Hg have been studied the most frequently (Das et al. 2001).
