Millard.Deverel.88.df: Copper and Zinc Concentrations in Shallow Ground Water

Description Usage Format Source References

Description

Copper and zinc concentrations (mg/L) in shallow ground water from two geological zones (Alluvial Fan and Basin-Trough) in the San Joaquin Valley, CA. There are 68 samples from the Alluvial Fan zone and 50 from the Basin-Trough zone. Some observations are reported as <DL, where DL denotes a detection limit. There are multiple detection limits for both the copper and zinc data in each of the geological zones.

Usage

Format

A data frame with 118 observations on the following 8 variables.

Cu.orig

a character vector of original copper concentrations (mg/L)

Cu

a numeric vector of copper concentrations with nondetects coded to their detection limit

Cu.censored

a logical vector indicating which copper concentrations are censored

Zn.orig

a character vector of original zinc concentrations (mg/L)

Zn

a numeric vector of zinc concentrations with nondetects coded to their detection limit

Zn.censored

a logical vector indicating which zinc concentrations are censored

Zone

a factor indicating the zone (alluvial fan vs. basin trough)

Location

a numeric vector indicating the sampling location
