Collection of Geochemical Data from Alaska

Summary

This collection consists of raw sample analyses of whole rock major oxide with minor element analyses on rock, soil, or stream sediments samples, as well as trace metal analyses. In general, the analyses include only those samples collected from projects involving Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) geologists or that appear in DGGS publications. The current interface for WebGeochem has some performance issues due to the dynamic nature of the data and the number of analyses. We hope to improve the speed of the query tool and add a map interface tool to query the data spatially. There is an additional 5,000 to 10,0000 geochemical sample analyses in DGGS reports and unpublished files that have not been added to [...]
