Abstract : The report deals with some considerations drawn from the results obtained during surveys performed in 1970. They represent the preliminary phase of a long term program concerning the dispersion of pollutants in coastal waters of the Northern Adriatic Sea, controlled by physical, chemical and biological processes. At present, two fundamental sources of pollution have been approached, the Venice lagoon and the Po River. (Author)
