Date Range: 

Wednesday, June 29, 1988 to Thursday, August 10, 1989

Publication Date: 

Thursday, December 12, 1991

Methods: 

Lakes and streams along the Dalton Highway from Galbraith Lake to Prudhoe Bay were sampled and analysed for dissolved organic carbon (DIC) and 13C.

Site Code: site of measurement
Date: in dd-mmm-yyyy
del_13C: del 13C value per mil

CALCULATIONS
All values are in per mil (o/oo) and are calculated as del 13C (o/oo) = [(R sample/R standard)-1] x 1000, where R is (13C/12C). Results are reported versus PDB as a standard.
