Description

From abstract: "Water samples from two Hudson River floods in 1977--one originating mainly in shale sub-basins that produce high sediment loads, the other in soil-poor, crystalline rock terrane that yields little sediment--were analyzed to evaluate the relationship of iron, manganese, lead, phosphorous, and polychloride biphenyle (PCB's) to suspend-sediment concentration."
