Özet

In this work, the LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) and ICP-OES technique has been applied to the determination of total contents of heavy metals (Fe, Zn, Al, Mn, Co, Cr, Cu, Ni, Na, Mg, K, Ca) in soil samples of Marmara Sea. In order to validate the technique, LIBS data were compared with data obtained on the same soil samples by application of conventional Inductively Coupled Plasma ICP spectroscopy. The partial agreement obtained between the two sets of data suggested the potential applicability of the LIBS technique to the measurement of heavy metals in soils. According to the results, it was seen that the elements determined by ICP-OES analysis were also determined by LIBS method. The LIBS method is an important and practical technique for determining the elements that are enriched with anthropogenic factors as well as the elements resulting from natural processes.
