Description:

NFLD lake sediment compilation of ~17000 sites.  The sample (0.25g) was fused with 1 gram of a 2:1 mixture of Na2CO3-KNO3 flux for 10 minutes in a nickel crucible, and the residue dissolved in 1% citric acid. Fluorine (F) content (total) was determined by fluoride-ion selective electrode.
