Description:
Abstract:
This report provides background information on the regional geochemical data provided by the US Geological Survey to the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem Management Project (ICBEMP). This report is one in a series of digital maps, data files, and reports generated by the US Geological Survey to provide geologic process and mineral resource information to the Interior Columbia Basin Ecosytem Management Project. The various digital maps and data files are being used in a GIS-based ecosystem assessment including an analysis of diverse questions relating to past, present, and future conditions within the general area of the Columbia River Basin east of the Cascade Mountains.
Purpose:
To provide to the public a digital geologic map database of geochemistry of the Pacific Northwest.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The major consideration for use of the data is that the geochemical analytical methods were not consistent in the four different NURE laboratories (Savannah River, Oak Ridge, Lawrence Livermore, or Los Alamos). Thus there are differences between quadrangles due to differences in analytical method. No attempt was made to make the supporting NURE data consistent amoung the quadrangles.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The data provided on internet for this report is derived primarily from the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) of the Department of Energy for the states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana.
Completeness_Report: Complete
Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The analytical data were divided into three analytical groups, reformatted, and imported as point coverages into the ARC/INFO GIS. The data were grouped by the laboratory at which most of the samples from a site were analyzed.
