The data presented in this publication were obtained over a five-year period, October 1, 1962-September 30, 1967 and represent over 1,500 samples collected from over 130 sampling stations. Of the nineteen elements routinely sought, boron, barium and strontium occurred with a frequency of over 98%. Zinc, iron and copper were found quite frequently, being observed in about 75% of the samples. Manganese was slightly less frequent at 51%. Aluminum, lead, chromium, molybdenum and nickel varied between 16 and 33%. Cadmium, beryllium, silver, cobalt, vanadium and arsenic were detected at measurable levels in less than 7% of the samples.
