Description 
Summary

Water samples were taken from roughly 20 stations in the N. Aegean, 13 in the Thermaikos Gulf and 6 in the S. Aegean from various water depths within the framework of the above mentioned projects. Thermaikos Gulf was sampled two times, whereas North Aegean was sampled six times and South Aegean three times throughout the time period 1997-1998.Prior to the determination of metals with AAS, the samples were preconcentrated using the Chelex-100 method. Clean techniques were followed during all steps of sampling and analysis.
