Information Specialist
Randy Koski
Equipment Used
Determine extent of Acid and Metal Flux into Intertidal Zone
Information to be Derived
Distribution of mine wastes along the shoreline; extent of sulfide oxidation
and resulting flux of acid and metals  into the intertidal and subtidal zones.
Collected about 50 samples of fresh surface water, pore water, and seawater
(pH, alkalinity, conductivity, and dissolved oxygen analyzed in the field, IC
and ICP-MS analyses in USGS labs); collected about 30 rock (sulfides), 15
sediment (mud), and 8 precipitate samples (analyzed by ICP-MS in USGS labs).
Collaboration with University of Alaska Anchorage, professor LeeAnn Munk.
