Analytical Method Metadata

Quantity: Terbium
Units: ppm

NFLD lake sediment compilation of ~17000 sites.  Total concentration of the element was determined by INAA on about 10g of sample.  The samples (with duplicates and control reference materials included incognito) were weighed and encapsulated in the Geochemical Laboratory of the Dept. of Mines and Energy in St. John's.  The determination limit may have varied over the years.
