Abstract (in english)
   Contamination of the Kafue River network in the Copperbelt, northern Zambia, was investigated using sampling and analyses of solid phases and water, speciation modeling, and multivariate statistics. Total metal contents in stream sediments show that the Kafue River and especially its tributaries downstream from the main contamination sources are highly enriched with respect to Cu and exceed the Canadian limit for freshwater sediments.
