Bundle Description

NGR lake sediment samples collected in Labrador between 1977 and 1985 were analysed by ICP-ES, following a near-total acid digestion.

The data were published by McConnell and Finch (2012).

Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Natural Resources, Geochemical Laboratory

Name: NL Geochemical Laboratory ICP-ES analysis (more)

30 elements were analysed by ICP-ES, following an HCl-HF-HClO4 digestion.

This is the standard ICP-ES package developed by the NL Geochemical Laboratory, and employed over several years.

It appears that initially the package was limited to 28 elements.  Ga was added at a later date and Th at a still later date.

Values below detection are reset to the detection limit.  As a result, it is not possible to distinguish between values below detection and values at the detection limit.
