Concentrations of rare earth elements (REE), major inorganic solutes, and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) were measured in waters from the Great Dismal Swamp in southeastern Virginia, including Lake Drummond (pH=4.3), and its principal surface inflows and outflow. Concentrations of REE are high in the lake (average Nd=8 nmol/kg), and the acidic DOC-rich inflow and out flow waters (i.e., Nd=12.5 nmol/kg in Jericho–Washington Ditch and ~8 nmol/kg in Feeder Ditch, respectively). The slightly acidic… CONTINUE READING
