X-Ray Assay Laboratories (lake sediment) C-org

X-Ray Assay Laboratories, lake sediment; C-org by LECO combustion method

General Methodology:

Carbon-organic was determined by performing a loss on ignition at 450oC after evolution of water.  Lake sediments had carbon-organic levels much too high for conventional carbon-organic methods.
