Dissolved forms of manganese and iron elements and some physical parameters in the water column of the Southeastern Black Sea were investigated. Samples were collected from 14 different depths of the water column in the station. Sea Bird SBE 25 Sealogger CTD was utilized for measurement of temperature, salinity, sigma-t and conductivity. However, Winkler method was used tor dissolved oxygen measurements. Also, hydrogen sulphide was determined by using the titration method. Dissolved iron and manganese were analyzed with GBC 905 FAAS after pre-concentration of MIBK.
