Description 
Summary

River Supsa and the sea area adjacent to the river delta are located in the limits of the zone subjected to the impact from oil pipeline and oil terminal. Operation of terminal is related to a range of various factors affecting environment. In compliance with the program S-01-GPC-PWR-00424 SRF Gamma carries out monitoring of coastal strip and the water area. Objective of performed monitoring is to study of level of chemical pollution of the river and the sea area. Concentration of metals in sea water are determined by atomic absorption method after preliminary concentration with cosedimentation procedure.
