LineageThe data were collected in two batches, spring and fall of 1993. The spring data had been compiled prior to the fall sampling, and the entire file was completed by summer 1994. Because of poorly documented field methods, and excessively high reporting limits for the trace inorganics, only the MAJOR CATION, ANION, and ISOTOPE data are considered reliable.
