The Distribution of the Heavy Metals in Soil Sample Along Blue Nile During overflow Season

Magdi H. Saad

Abstract


The research cared out to calculate the heavy metals deposition for the soil of the Blue Nile along the edges of two sides, starting from the Sudan Ethiopia border end to the Khartoum state in Tuti Island. The samples were analyzed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) technique. The results show that there is a significant difference for most of the concentration of the elements deposition on two sides of the Blue Nile outside of Nile channel for that area which covered by water after the overflow. Heavy metals Cr, Fe, Co, Cu, and Zn concentration deposition are increased in the direction of the water to Khartoum, while Ni and Pb concentrations are decreased in the same direction. K, Ca, Ti, Mn, Br, Rb, Sr, and Zr heavy metal concentrations are varied but in general remains equals.
