BC RGS stream sediment and water survey, NTS 92B, C, southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, 1989.
(requires an Internet connection)
A total of 559 sites were sampled in 1989 for moss-mat sediment and stream water at an average density of 1 site per 10.3 km2. Provincial parks were excluded from the sampling program. Samples were collected by truck, boat or helicopter, depending on accessibility. The data are published in British Columbia RGS 24/Geological Survey of Canada Open File 2182.
This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
Moss-mat sediment samples weighing 1-2 kg were scraped from logs and boulders found within the active stream channel and placed in kraft-paper bags. Unfiltered water samples were collected in 250 ml Nalgene bottles and precautions were taken to exclude suspended solids when possible.
