Effect of Mining and Related Activities on the Sediment Trace Element Geochemistry of Lake Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
Entry ID: BESTsed09

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The purpose of the USGS study was to determine the trace element
concentrations, partitioning, and distribution in the sediment column
and to relate them to mining, and mining related discharge operations
that have occurred in the Coeur d'Alene (CDA) district since the
1880's. Surface bed sediment samples were collected from Lake Coeur
d'Alene, ID in August 1989 and bulk surface sediment ... View entire text

Quality Precision and bias for the chemical analyses were monitored by
replicate analyses of selected samples and by the concomitant
digestion and analysis of NIST reference sediment and USGS rock and
soil standards. Precision was usually better than ? 10 percent; no
bias was detected. The only qualifier code used in the data set
