Abstract

The Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is one of the prominent factors affecting metals concentration in the marine environment. Hence, this research is aiming to study the effect of SST on Zn content distribution in the seawater of Blanakan coast. The Zn was measured from sampled seawater collected from 7 stations were representing inshore and offshore of Blanakan coast. The sampled water then analyzed by AAS to obtain the Zn contents which confirms a positive effect of SST on Zn contents (r2 = 0.18). An increase of SST from 25 to 31°C was followed by increase of Zn in seawater from 0.31 to 0.50 mg/l of water. Respectively, all Zn values in Blanakan coast have exceeded the permissible limit of EPA (0.09 mg/l for seawater). Following the SST fluctuation, it is predicted that Zn in seawater will be higher in February-May and lower in July-September.
