Abstract

Marine sediment samples were collected from 22 sampling sites along the coastal area of Sabah and Sarawak, Malaysia at various depths. The samples were digested using microwave program and then analyzed for Al, Fe, Mn, Cu, Cr, Co, Cd, As, V, Ni and Pb. For comparison purpose a direct measurement of solid samples was carried out using XRF. Results obtained by ICP-MS were compared with those obtained from XRF using different statistical methods such as two side t-test and paired t-test. Quality control of the obtained data was carried out using different standard reference materials.
