Already in 1986 a contract was signed for a scientific-technical co-operation between the Russian Federation (former USSR) and the Federal Republic of Germany. Based on this contract, the Oka-Elbe Project was launched in Nizhniy Novgorod in 1992. Due to the excellent results obtained until 1995, the project was prolongated as Oka-Elbe Project (part 2). Detailed investigations within the frame of the Oka-Elbe Project (part 2) were begun in October 1995. In the new phase of co-operation, special attention was given to heavy metals and organic contaminants of the Klyazma and the Moskova River Basins and their sediments, the most polluted parts of the Oka River drainage area. Fine grained sediments are indicators for pollution with heavy metals and other contaminants in aquatic environments. Accordingly, the sediment investigations in the Oka area were designed to evaluate the present situation of heavy metal pollution and, furthermore, to estimate their hazard potentials with respect to practicable sanitation methods. This report presents the results of the detailed investigations of the heavy metal and organic pollution of the aquatic sediments of the largest part of the Moskva River Basin up- and downstream from the city of Moscow and of the main part of the Klyazma River Basin for the section from Moscow to Vladimir carried out by the Institute of Environmental Geochemistry, University of Heidelberg and members of the All Russian Research Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Land Reclamation (VNIIGiM), Moscow.
