Description: From abstract: This abbreviated data report presents results of ground water and stream/surface sediment reconnaissance in the National Topographic Map Series (NTMS) McDermitt 1 x 2* quadrangle. Surface sediment samples were collected at 1337 sites, at a target sampling density of one site per 13 square kilometers (five square miles). Ground water samples were collected at 255 sites and surface water samples were collected at 41 sites. Neutron activation analysis (NAA) results are given for uranium and 16 other elements in sediments, and for uranium and 9 other elements in ground water and surface water. Mass spectrometry results are given for helium in ground water. Field measurements and observations are reported for each site. Analytical data and field measurements are presented in tables and maps.
