Lead associated with automobile combustion is deposited on snow after adsorption onto ice fog particles in the Fairbanks, Alaska area. Fifty selected bodies of lentic water in the area were sampled for dissolved and particulate lead and for lead concentrations in the muds, plankton, and aquatic plants. Statistical analyses were carried out to determine correlations existing between the lead concentrations in the different fractions of each lake. An attempt was made to examine the lead concentrations for each fraction statistically, grouping the lakes according to areas of ice fog severity, to see if the fallout of the lead and its partitioning into the various fractions related to ice fog formation. Some evidence was found that this does occur. The limitations of the project are discussed in relation to the implications to human health. (Author Modified Abstract)
