dc.description.abstractWater samples collected from the Olentangy River in August, 1995, have been sent for analysis by ICP (X-Ray Assay Labs. Toronto, Ontario. Canada) and tested for the concentrations of Be, Na, Mg, Ca, Cu, Zn, Ba, K. P, Fe. Mn, Sc, n, V, Cr, Co, Ni, As, Sr, Y, Zr, Mo, Ag, Cd, Sn, Sb, La, W, Pb, Bi, and AI. Trends and patterns searched for in the data produced a decrease in the concentrations of Na. Mg, Ca, Cu, Zn,and Ba due to dilution, and erratic behavior in P, Fe, Mn, Sr, and AI which allowed no conclusions to be drawn from the data for these elements. The concentrations of the rest of the elements were below their sensitivity limits. At the confluence of the Olentangy and Scioto Rivers. the concentrations of Na, Mg, Ca, Cu, Zn. and Ba increased due to mixing. Irregular behaviors were discovered in the plots of sodium vs calcium and sodium vs magnesium downstream in the Olentangy River, Ohio. The reason behind this is basis for another study.en_US
