The finest fraction of suspended matter in stream water was analysed with particle induced X-ray emission (PIXE). Twenty metals were readily detected. The method is very promising for monitoring heavy metals in river water and for geochemical exploration. Theoretical models for the distribution of heavy metals between solution and suspension are presented. The fit of the models to water chemistry is, however, not entirely successful. An empirical equation shows very good correlation between the data for zinc in solution and in suspension.
