Abstract
Details a study on the spatial patterns of arsenic and lead distribution in Jamaican soils using the Geographical Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS) and data from an island wide soil survey. Arsenic and lead were analysed by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and energy-dispersive x-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) techniques. The frequency distribution of each element is discussed in relation tomajor lithological groups. The As-Pb background levels for different areas in Jamaica were estimated.....
