Over twenty years ago, Professor Rob Elias did research on lead isotopes in
the Kellogg, Idaho area, USA.
I do not have any titles. As of 15 years ago, Rob was working for the US

Hello Alfredo:

        You should search for publications by Joe Graney (Geology Dept. at
SUNY Binghampton in New York State).

        He has published - Graney, J. R., Keeler, G.J., and Christensen,
J.N. (2000) Environmental Applications of MC-ICPMS: Using Pb Isotope Ratios
from Precipitation Samples to Help Constrain Pollutant Source and Fate in
the Great Lakes and South Florida Regions. Proceedings Volume of the Air
and Waste Management Association International Symposium on the Measurement
of Toxic and Related Air Pollutants, Research Triangle Park, NC., and
refers to several other papers in review.  He can be reached by E-mail at

      Dear Isogeochemists...

      I'm looking for relevant experiences discriminating
      the origin of lead and chromium in airbone dust
      (PM10).  Two main possible sources of lead are
      identified: the first lead from gasoline due to heavy
      traffic (still present in LDCs) and the second
      emissions from medium size smelters.  Does anybody has
      experience or publications regarding to using isotope
      signals as a tool to identify, for sure, sources of
      metals such as lead and chromium in airbone dust?

      Many thanks for any input,

      Alfredo Torrico
