Abstract The limitations of “thin-film” X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis of natural particulate matter have been re-examined theoretically and experimentally. The degree to which elemental signal intensity is absorbed by the sample matrix far exceeds that which has been assumed in most previous field studies. By means of a simplified theoretical model, the magnitude of absorption effects is predicted for various elements in a variety of natural matrices. The non-specialist may quantify… Expand
