Description:
Abstract:
This metadata file (pbsamthk.met) describes two dBase4 tables. One table (alsamPb.dbf) contains UTM coordinates for 998 surface-sediment geochemical sample sites, and concentration of lead, in parts per million (ppm Pb), in each sample. The other table (thkpb11.dbf) contains UTM coordinates for 428 point locations, thickness (in centimeters) of Pb-rich sediment, and thickness- interval weighted-average lead concentration in each stratigraphic section of Pb-rich sediment.
These data were compiled from ten different studies referenced herein, in which different methods were used to digest and chemically analyze samples. Total analytical uncertainty (including uncertainty in estimation of area, density, and Pb concentration) is estimated at 25% or less. Median based estimates are preferred over mean based estimates, which are unduly influenced by very high values for thickness and lead concentration of Pb-rich sediment.
Purpose:
This data set was prepared as part of an effort to portray the distribution, character, quantity, and Pb content of Pb-rich sediment in the Coeur d' Alene (CdA) River valley. This is basic information needed to estimate the extent of environmental damage, and evaluate alternative strategies for environmental remediation and restoration.
Supplemental_Information:
This Metadata (Pbsamthk.met) describes two dBase4 tables (alsamPb.dbf and thkpb11.dbf)used in a ArcView GIS. The alsamPb.dbf table was imported as an Event Theme to display locations of geochemical sample sites, and the concentration of lead (Pb) at each of those sites in parts per million (ppm). The thkpb11.dbf table was imported as an Event Theme to display location of sites where the thickness of lead-rich sediments was measured or estimated. These two dBase4 tables were compiled in MS Excel from many sets of source materials, and were documented in this single Metadata file. Included with these two tables are two AVL's (alsamPb.avl and thkpb11.avl) that are used to format the ArcView legend.
Metadata file cdafldpl.met describes three other shape files used (cdasurf4_utm.shp, fldpln2.shp, and fpaream2.shp).
Metadata file pbrchseg.met describes three additional shape files used (segments.shp, rivreach.shp, and Pb1000.shp).

Dr. Mohammed Ikramuddin, of Eastern Washington University, provided most of the chemical analyses collected by USGS-GD. USGS-WRD, USFWS, USEPA, and the University of Idaho also provided major sets of data included here. Eastern Washington University student, Scott Prevatte, calculated depth-weighted average Pb concentrations from depth-interval data, and helped prepare ArcView GIS files.

We entered sample-site coordinates and geochemical data into a spreadsheet, alsamPb.xls (in MS Excel 2000), which we converted to a dBase4 database, alsamPb.dbf. We then imported this database into ArcView as an Event Theme, so that the data can be displayed and queried. Included in the GIS is an AVL (alsampb.avl) that is used to format the ArcView theme legend.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Bender (1991), Rabbi (1994), and Hoffmann (1995) presented 1:6,250- to 1:25,000-scale maps of their sample locations in lateral lakes. A summary article by Sprenke and others (2000) also included a small- scale map showing their sample locations. However, these workers did not describe how they located their sample sites on the maps they presented. We transferred locations of sample sites from the paper maps to on-screen images derived from USGS topographic maps, by measuring proportional distances between corresponding mapped features. We measured coordinates for each site identified on-screen, using ArcView software, set to meters, Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM), Zone 11, 1927 North American Datum (NAD 1927).
Fousek (1996) used a commercial GPS receiver, not corrected for random variations introduced by the military, to measure latitude-longitude coordinates of sample sites, which he reported in decimal degrees, to four decimal places, as referenced to NAD 1927. We used ARC/INFO to convert latitude-longitude to UTM Zone-11 coordinates. Most of those locations appeared accurate to within about 100 m (330 ft), but some apparently were less accurate, based on comparisons of sample sample- site locations with sample descriptions or classifications.
From 1993 to 1996 Box and others (2001) visually identified field locations of sample sites on 1:24,000-scale USGS topographic maps, referenced to the 1927 North American Datum (NAD 1927). Coordinates of latitude and longitude were manually measured from those maps in degrees, minutes and seconds, arithmetically converted to decimal degrees (to 4 decimal places). We used ARC/INFO to convert latitude- longitude coordinates to metric Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates for Zone 11. Locations determined in this way are considered accurate to within about 50 to 150 ft (about 15 to 45 m), depending on the distinctiveness of the site and its distance from features recognized on the ground and on the map.
Beginning in 1996, Balistrieri and others (2000), and Box and others (2001) located sample sites with the NAVSTAR Global Positioning System (GPS), Precise Positioning Service (PPS), available only to US Governmental Agencies. Coordinates of latitude and longitude (referenced to NAD 1927) were measured in degrees and minutes, to three decimal places. Locations determined in this way are considered accurate to within about 10 m (33 ft). USGS drill sites in the river channel had been located previously by tape-and-compass measurement from mapped and marked reference sites on riverbanks. Locations of those reference sites were checked by GPS (PPS) measurement in 1997. Box and others (2001) converted coordinates expressed in decimal minutes to decimal degrees (to decimal 4 places). We used ARC/INFO to convert these latitude-longitude coordinates to UTM Zone 11 coordinates.
LeJeune and others (1995), U.S. EPA (1998), and Campbell and others (1999), determined sample-site coordinates using commercial GPS receivers, differentially corrected for random variations introduced by the military, by comparison with fixed-station receivers. Locations of these sites are considered accurate to within about 5 m (16 ft). LeJeune and others (1995) and Campbell and others (1999) referenced coordinates to NAD 1927. At our request, U.S. EPA (1998) converted UTM coordinates, measured relative to the 1983 North American Datum, to UTM coordinates referenced to NAD 1927.
U.S. EPA (1999b) published large-scale paper maps of sample sites in the report on geochemical sampling along transects across the railroad right-of-way. They noted measured distances from railroad mile- markers to indicate locations of sampling transects. They noted perpendicular distance from the centerline of the railroad bed to indicate sample-site locations. The Coeur d'Alene Tribal GIS group transferred locations of mile-markers and sample sites to 1:24,000- scale USGS topographic maps (NAD 1927), measured UTM Zone 11 coordinates from topographic-map grids, and entered those coordinates into the spreadsheet, alsamp.xls, which we obtained from them by electronic transfer.
To verify sample-site coordinates, we plotted sample sites on the shape file cdasurf4_utm.shp in ArcView. Some plot locations did not match field descriptions or classifications of those sites. For example, some sites within the floodplain, had coordinates that placed them outside the floodplain. Also, some riverbank sites had coordinates that placed them in the river or on the floodplain. In some cases we were able to correct misfit locations by matching them to original field map or original GPS coordinates. In other cases, we moved the misfit location to the nearest site that would fit its field description or wetland-unit classification. We then used ArcView to determine UTM new coordinates for the revised location, and we replaced the misfit coordinates with the revised coordinates.
