Contents Notes
The USGS has made publicly available its nationwide data on streambed sediment. This paper describes the database and does some initial analysis - for example, it found a nationwide correlation between urbanization and elevated copper levels in streambed sediments. Data is available online through the USGS trace elements web page: http://co.water.usgs.gov/trace/.
