Heavy metals are well-known environmental pollutants. In this thesis predictive models for heavy metals in urban lakes are discussed and new models presented. The base of predictive modelling is empirical data from field investigations of many ecosystems covering a wide range of ecosystem characteristics. Predictive models focus on the variabilities among lakes and processes controlling the major metal fluxes. Sediment and water data for this study were collected from ten small lakes in the Stockholm area, the Eastern parts of Lake Mälaren, the innermost areas of the Stockholm archipelago and from literature studies. By correlating calculated metal loads to the ...
