Diffusive gradients in thin-films (DGT) have been investigated for in situ monitoring of labile metals in north Australian coastal seawater. Field and experimental data showed that DGT devices provided adequate detection limits, accuracy and precision for monitoring of near-pristine levels of labile Mn, Co, Cu, Cd and Pb when deployed for periods of 3 days. However, Zn could not be adequately determined due to high blank levels. The ratio of DGT-labile to 0.45 µm-filtered metal levels in natural seawater ranged from 0.44–0.63 for Cu but was close to unity for Co and Cd. Elevated levels of suspended particulate matter up to 57.3 mg l–1 did not have an adverse effect on the performance of DGT.
