Surface-water Quality Assessment of the Yakima River Basin in Washington: Chemical Analyses of Major, Minor and Trace Elements in Fine-Grained Sediment.
Entry ID: BESTsed20

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The overall scope of the surface water NAWQA program includes organic
and inorganic analyses of media such as water, sediments, and biota.
Inorganic data from this report will be used to relate the occurrence
and distribution of major and trace elements to geologic sources and
land use activities. In addition, the elements associated with
streambed sediments are important contributors to water ... View entire text

Quality Quality assurance was evaluated by including standard reference
materials, random split samples, and laboratory duplicates. Quality
assessment procedures and results for analytical precision and
accuracy for the four NAWQA pilot studies are presented by Sanzolone
and Ryder (1989). The laboratory data were reviewed and data
