Trace metals (Cu, Fe, Mg, Mn and Zn) concentration distribution in water and sediment were determined by atomic absorption methods with flame and flameless systems using wet dissolution method. The samples were collected from Langhovde, Antarctica. The result showed an approximate log-normal distribution of concentration of metals in sediment of the Yukidori Valley.
