Abstract


The objective of this study is to comparatively analyse and assess the heavy metal pollution in coastal areas of Ennore and Royapuram, Tamilnadu, India. Ennore coast receives untreated/treated effluents from Manali Industrial belt, which houses many chemical Industries. Royapuram mainly receives domestic sewage. Analyses of water and mussel samples were done by ICP-AES. During summer all the dissolved heavy metals exhibited maximum values. The result shows that concentrations of copper, cadmium, zinc and lead were above the permissible limits.
