The geochemical background of heavy metals in the soils and sediments of the Elbe river valley has been investigated in three cross-sections by drillings down to 8 m. The average contents in clay and sandy material are listed up in Tab, 1. By using the background levels the enrichments of heavy metals in agricultural soils not far off an industrial area in the southeast of Hamburg have been estimated. Referring to these works the investigations were extended to the whole territory of Hamburg.
