Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains geochemical data for unconsolidated sediments (stream sediments, lake sediments, etc.) collected in the United States and analyzed in the analytical laboratories of the Geologic Division of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). These data represent analyses of sediment samples collected in support of various USGS programs. The data were originally entered into the in-house PLUTO database which was used by the Geologic Division from the mid-1970's through the mid-1990's to archive geochemical data. A portion of the PLUTO data base is published as: Baedecker, P.A., Grossman, J.N., and Buttleman, K.P., 1998, National Geochemical Data base: PLUTO geochemical data base for the United States: U.S. Geological Survey Digital Data Series DDS-47. The data presented here are derived from DDS-47.
Purpose:
The PLUTO data base is comprised of inorganic geochemical data obtained by the analytical laboratories of the Geologic Division of the U.S. Geological Survey for samples collected throughout the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska, in support of USGS research.

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The samples in this dataset were chemically analyzed by a variety of techniques over a period of time from the early 1960's to the mid-1990's. The accuracy of the data varies with the analytical methodology and with the concentration of the element being analyzed. A qualifier such as "<" (less than) or ">" (greater than) accompanies some analytical data values. These qualifiers are defined as follows:

Sumbol < = the element was detected by the technique but at a level below the lower limit of determination for the method. The value of the lower limit of determination is given in the accompanying data field.

Symbol > = the element was measured at a concentration greater than the upper limit of determination for the method. The value of the upper limit of determination is given in the accompanying data field.

Symbol N = the element was measured at a concentration less than the lower limit of determination for the method. The value of the lower limit of determination is given in the accompanying data field.

Symbol B = the element was requested for analysis by the sample submitter, but for some reason the laboratories did not analyze for this element.

When appropriate, these qualifying values appear in this dataset as a separate field preceding each element. The attribute, or field name, for the qualifying values field are always labelled Q. For example, "<" in the "Si_Q" field preceding an analytical data field labelled Si would indicate the actual concentration of silicon is less than the data value listed.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
More than one analytical technique may have been used to produce data for a given sample. In these cases, more than one record will be listed for one sample with each record representing a different analytical method.
Completeness_Report:
This dataset provides chemcial data for Si, Al, Fe, Mg, Ca, Na, K, Ti, P, Ag, As, Au, B, Ba, Be, Bi, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, La, Mo, Nb, Ni, Pb, Pd, Pt, Sb, Sn, Sr, U, V, W, Y, Zr, Ce, Li, Th, Tl, Rh, Ru, Rb, Zn, F, Hg, S, Te, Se, organic carbon and FeO. In addition, the dataset provides location and descriptive information for each sample. Not all the descriptive fields contain information for a particular sample because it was not recorded by the submitter or because it was never entered into the PLUTO database. The analytical methods used were selected by the sample submitter based on the goals of the project and will vary throughout the data set. The analytical methods used are documented in the following publications:

Arbogast, B.F., editor, 1990, Quality assurance manual for the Branch of Geochemistry: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 90-668.

Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Sample locations were determined from USGS topographic maps of various scales. The accuracy is dependant on the scale of the map from which the determination was made as well as the care taken by the individual who made the determination. When submitters reported locations as degrees, minutes, and seconds of latitude and longitude the accuracy should be within a few seconds. When submitters only reported locations as degrees and minutes the accuracy is only to the nearest minute. The latitude and longitude degrees, minutes, and seconds have been converted to decimal degrees for this dataset. The base maps, from which latitude and longitude coordinates were determined, use the 1927 North American Datum (NAD27) based on the Clarke 1866 ellipsoid.

Process_Description:
The data were generated by the analytical laboratories of the U.S. Geological Survey over several years, beginning in the early 1960s and ending about 1995. Upon completion of the chemical analysis, the data were stored in the PLUTO database. Portions of this database were published in 1998 in DDS-47.

USGS DDS-47 was used to generate the sediment data set. The GSSEARCH software accompanying DDS-47 was used to retrieve all sample media labeled as "unconsolidated sediment" from the CD and was stored in ASCII format. Another program contained on DDS-47 was used to convert the ASCII file to a .dbf file. This file contains data for a total of 79,709 sediment samples. However, the total number of records in the file is 127,288. This is because each sediment sample analyzed by more than one analytical technique has a separate record for each technique. Thus, one sediment sample may be listed several times.

The following codes are used to represent the analytical methods:
WX = wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence analysis
EX = energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence analysis
SQ = semiquantitative spectro-analysis
QS = quantitative spectro-analysis
IN = instrumental neutron activation analysis
AA = flame and graphite furnace atomic absorption analysis
CH = miscellaneous chemical analysis
DN = delayed neutron anaysis
MS = inductively coupled plasma - mass spectrographic analysis
Note that many of the samples have no analytical method identified. This is a shortcoming of the PLUTO database.The PLUTO DBF file was imported into ArcView 3.2 and an ArcView shapefile was generated which contained 127,288 sample locations.

Unconsolidated sediment (It should be noted that there are many types of unconsolidated sediment in this data set. Some samples have only been sieved to specific size fractions before analysis. Other samples, for example, have undergone further sample preparation in the form of heavy liquid separation and/or magnetic separation to concentrate specific heavy minerals. Information on the specific type of sediment is generally given in the "DESCRIPTN" field where the person who collected the samples should explain the preparation protocol prior to analysis.)
