The Sweden Biogeochemical Database
Entry ID: SGU_BIOGEOCHEMISTRY

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The biogeochemical database contains results from sampling and analyses of
water living plants (mosses and roots, approximately 15 elements). The samples
have been ashed prior to analyses, and the results show how the composition of
stream water varies in Sweden. Natural weathering of soils and bedrock, as well
as anthropogenic sources, contribute to the variation. As several of the
elements analysed are potentially harmful metals, the results are of interest
for environmental purposes. Mineral exploration is another application for the
data. Here the copper contents are shown (as mg/kg ash). The colours range from
blue (low contents) to red (high contents).
