  • During the summer of 1990,12 gravity cores were collected in Lake Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, at various depths and in a variety of depositional environments. All core subsamples were analyzed to determine bulk sediment chemistry; selected subsamples were analyzed for trace element partitioning and ^7Cs activity. The purpose of these analyses was to determine the trace element concentrations and distributions in the sediment column and to try to establish a trace element geochemical history of the… CONTINUE READING
