Abstract

The contents of lithophile elements increase with the size of the suspended estuary particles taken at a station in the port of Ho Chi Minh, while the finely divided fraction is enriched in nickel, chromium, and thorium. The suspensate in the Saigon River is enriched in K, Rb, Cs, Ti, Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Cr, Pb, Cd, Mo, La, Sm, Hf, Th, and Ni and depleted in Ca, Sr, Ba, Sc, Co, As, Ce, Eu, Tb, Lu, and V relative to sedimentary rocks. -from Journal summary
