GSC (surface water) ion chromatography (NO3,PO4,SO4,Cl)

Geological Survey of Canada, surface water; ion chromatography (NO3, PO4, SO4, chlorine)

General Methodology:

Measured using ion chromatography.  A 100 micro litre sample was separated on an exchange resin and the resulting solution passed through a high capacity cation exchange resin to a conductivity cell.  The eluent used was 0.003 M Na2CO3/0.0024 M NaHCO3.  A Dionex System 12 was used.
