Heavy metals in different marine environmental mediums from the Great Wall Bay, Antarctica were determined. Sea water samples from 14 stations, surface sediments from 2 stations and marine organisms from 1 station were analyzed for Cu, Pb, Zn, Cd, Cr, Hg concentrations, The results showed that the terrestrial input characteristics of Cu, Pb and Cr in sea water was evident. Zn concentration in the outlet water was high. The difference of each heavy metal concentration in two sediments was low. The enriching ability of seaweed to Zn was relatively high. Generally speaking, the concentration level of heavy metals in the Great Wall Bay was low.
