EML revision ID:
Creek water was collected from the fourth pond upstream of the Imnavait Creek flume. Collected water was placed in 4 liter beakers, acidified with HCL, and evaporated with an electric hot plate. Dried organic matter was removed from the beaker walls with a metal spatula and stored in scintillation vials. Radiocarbon activities and del 13C measurements were performed on the dried DOM.
del 13C = [(13C/12C sample / 13C/12C standard) - 1] x 1000
