BC RGS stream sediment and water survey, NTS 92E, northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, 1988.
(requires an Internet connection)
In 1988, a total of 385 sites were sampled for moss-mat sediment and stream water in the Nootka Sound area, Vancouver Island. Samples were collected at a density averaging 1 site per 10.5 km2. Fifty-seven percent of the samples were collected by truck and boat; the remaining 43% were collected by helicopter. The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 2038 and British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Petroleum Resources Regional Geochemical Survey RGS 21.
This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
Moss-mat sediment samples weighing 1-2 kg were scraped from boulders and logs found within the active stream channel and placed in large kraft paper sample bags. Water samples were collected in 250 mL Nalgene bottles.
