Competitive reactions and effects of conservativity
Conservative mixing of metals in river mouths and estuaries is generally defined as occurring when concentrations of these metals have a linear relationship with salinity (line (b) in Fig. 6.1). When a relationship such as curve (a) exists, one concludes a subsequent addition or production of the dissolved chemical, while in the case of curve (c), a loss by degradation or settling is predicted in the low-salinity region.
