(requires an Internet connection)
Peat and underlying mineral sediment were sub-sampled from cores collected at 3 sites (Kinosheo Lake bog, Detour Lake bogs #1 and #2) in northeastern Ontario in 1994. The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Bulletin 545.
Whole peat and <0.063 mm fraction of mineral sediment by ICP-AES after aqua regia for 20 elements and by CV-AAS for Hg.
