AbstractTitrations using differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry (DPASV) to detect electroactive lead were carried out on fresh seawater samples and on samples stored acidified to determine the extent of lead complexation in the eastern North Pacific. Results of these analyses on surface water samples indicate total dissolved lead concentrations between 17 and 49 pM. The inorganic or DPASV labile fraction is 30–50%. Titration with lead yielded data consistent with one class of organic ligand(s), present at low concentration (between 0.2 and 0.5 nM) with a mean value for a conditional stability constant with respect to inorganic lead of log K′cond=9.7. The presence of this ligand, together with the various inorganic ligands in seawater, gives rise to a concentration of free ionic lead of ∼ 0.4 pM.
