Surficial Geology Along The Spokane River, Washington And Its Relationship To The Metal Content of Sediments
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2002_126

Abstract: The purpose of this study is (1) to document the geographic distribution of
Holocene (deposited in the last 11,000 years) sedimentary lithologies in and
along the Spokane River, (2) to document the downstream variation of metal
contents (especially lead [Pb] and zinc [Zn] ) by sedimentary lithology, and
(3) to compare the metal contents of different sedimentary lithologies. This
data is used to ... View entire text
