NGR BC AAS stream sediments and moss mats (Mo)

NGR British Columbia stream samples (sediments and moss mats), analysis by atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) for Mo.

General Methodology:

A 1 gm sample is dissolved in 3 ml HNO3 and allowed to sit overnight.  1 ml of HCl is added in a 90°C water bath and left for 2 hours.  The solution is then cooled, water is added, wait 2 hours.  An Al solution was added.  The element was determined by atomic absorption spectroscopy using an air-acetylene flame.
