It is almost immediately good well-known that overall concentrations of hint components in any environmental compartment offer inadequate info to appreciate vital phenomena. the excellence and separate research of particular chemical species are crucial for realizing cycles within the aquatic setting, regarding identity and quantification of resources, delivery pathways, distributions and sinks, or, within the quarter of interactions among hint components and organisms to appreciate uptake, distribution, excretion mechanisms and results. long ago, a variety of methods were constructed to figure out the character and volume of complexation of hint components in usual platforms. methods were alongside very diversified strains. those haven't continually been totally liked through experts operating in even comparable fields of complexation study. the 1st foreign Symposium at the Complexation of hint metals in ordinary Waters used to be held on the Netherlands Institute for Sea examine (NIOZ, Texel, the Netherlands from 2-6 could 1983. The medical programme used to be deliberate via the executive organizers Drs. C.J.M. Kramer and J.C. Duinker (NIOZ) including Prof. Dr. H.W. Nurnberg (Kernforschungsanlage, Julich, Federal Republic of Germany) and Dr. M. Branica (Rudjer Boskovic Institute, Zagreb, Yugoslavia).
