Till sampling, NTS 30M/11, 14, south central Ontario.
(requires an Internet connection)
Twenty nine samples from four soil profiles from 3 sites in the Rouge River basin and 1 site at the Scarborough Bluffs area of south-central Ontario were collected. No sampling year was given. The samples were studied to determine the general soil chemistry, the leaching histories and to assess the degree of soil contamination from industrial activity. The study is described in Journal of Radioanalytical and Nuclear Chemistry, v.148.
