As part of the Monterey Breakwater Project, six water samples were taken from the study area located offshore from Del Monte Beach east of Municipal Wharf No. 2 in Monterey, California. The heavy metals in the sea water were concentrated and removed using the ammonium pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate APDC--methyl isobutyl ketone MIBK solvent extraction system. The concentrations of the metals cobalt, copper, iron, lead, and nickel in the samples were determined using atomic absorption spectrophotometry. Author
