Abstract: Plankton samples from the surface and from 10 meters depth were collected in Monterey Bay and analyzed for Ag, Zn, Cu, Cr, Mn, Cd, and Pb. The results showed a trend toward higher concentration at the air-sea interface. Possible mechanisms of concentration processes are discussed, with some consideration given to the ecological implications.
