Survey Description

Profile soil sampling of eutric brunisols (generally developed in fine-textured and slowly permeable lacustrine sediment) was carried out at 6 sites northwest of Thompson, Manitoba.  No sampling year was given.  The objectives were: to determine dominant soil profile characteristics; to assess which soil forming processes are most active; and, to provide a geochemical assessment of selected elements.  Auger-sampling at 23 additional sites was carried out to supply sufficient sampling material for the geochemical assessment.  The study is published in Transactions of the Missouri Academy of Science, v.36.

Data Description:

Paper report, some cation data reported.  Results for Ba, Ni, Sr, Zn and Zr reported for 6 soil sites.

Quantities Analysed:

<2.00 mm fraction analyzed by ICP-AES after aqua regia and by INAA.

Geochem Maps Available:


Other Analyses:

<2.00 mm analyzed for major elements.
