Results are presented for total concentrations of these metals. The existence of removal processes in the early stages of the mixing process of freshwater and seawater is evident from their spatial distributions. It is suggested that this removal of heavy metals is associated with the geochemical process of flocculation and the formation of oxihydroxides, rather than with the dilution process. Input of heavy metals to the ecosystem was observed at low salinities that are likely associated to the process of desorption and are due to anthropogenic activities
