Concentration of inorganic chemical elements associated with suspended sediment at Muddy Creek below Paonia Reservoir, Gunnison County, Colorado, U.S. Geological Survey site number 385626107212000

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Dataset includes the analysis results of 49 inorganic chemical elements bound to suspended-sediment particles below Paonia Reservoir during a sediment release in September 2017. Suspended-sediment samples were collected at U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) station number 385626107212000 by following data collection procedures and protocols in Edwards and Glysson (1999). The samples were freeze-dried after collection and then decomposed using a mixture of nitric, hydrofluoric, and perchloric acids. The dried residue after acid digestion was analyzed by atomic absorption spectrometry and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry following procedures and protocols in Taggart (2002). Reference samples of flue gas desulfurization gypsum were also analyzed to test for contamination during the freeze-drying process.
