Description

From abstract: During July-August 1976, water and sediments were collected for the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory from streams and lakes over an area of -100 000 km2 around Kotzebue, Alaska. The sampling was by helicopter, as part of the NURE Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR) sponsored by the US ERDA. It was done according to rigorous, but simple, written procedures, at a nominal density of one location per 23 km 2, and included the 1400- to 1900-km2 area proposed for the Cape Krusenstern National Monument. All the samples would normally have been analyzed for uranium and presented in a ... continued below

Description

From abstract: During July-August 1976, water and sediments were collected for the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory from streams and lakes over an area of -100 000 km2 around Kotzebue, Alaska. The sampling was by helicopter, as part of the NURE Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Reconnaissance (HSSR) sponsored by the US ERDA. It was done according to rigorous, but simple, written procedures, at a nominal density of one location per 23 km 2, and included the 1400- to 1900-km2 area proposed for the Cape Krusenstern National Monument. All the samples would normally have been analyzed for uranium and presented in a regular HSSR report. However, due to an interest in the proposed Monument area, the Anchorage office of the Department of Interior, Bureau of Mines, provided funds for multielement analyses on the sediments taken from there. Consequently, in addition to the routine field data and uranium determinations for waters and/or sediments from 89 locations sampled over the proposed Cape Krusenstern Monument, the results of analyses of 44 additional elements in 77 of the sediments from there are provided. Sample locations are shown on a 1:250 000-scale plate. The data and descriptions of the methods used are in appendices.
