Analytical Method Metadata

Quantity: Loss on ignition
Units: percent

NFLD lake sediment compilation of ~17000 sites.  Gravimetric analysis was used to estimate organic carbon content from the weight loss on ignition (LOI) during a controlled combustion in which 1 gram aliquots of sample were gradually heated to 500°C in air over a 3 h period.
