Barium Concentrations and Salinity in Arctic River Estuaries, 1993-1996


This data set includes measurements of barium concentrations and salinity in samples collected from the estuaries of major Arctic rivers and adjacent shelf areas during 1993 to 1996. Investigators used Niskin bottles to collect water samples. The same samples were used to determine both barium concentrations and salinity. Barium concentrations were determined using isotope-dilution inductively coupled plasma quadrupole mass spectrometry. Salinities were calculated using a laboratory salinometer.
