Atlantic Ocean 19 K       0.21 0.82 30 wt%ox Potassium concentration range given from analyses of 30 Atlantic basalts (as K2O) in wt.%. MacDougall 1977 Aumento 1971
Atlantic Ocean 92 U       0.2 1.9 30 ppm Uranium concentration range as measured from 30 Atlantic basalts (in ppm) that have been altered. The alteration is what is believed to be the major sink for U in the ocean due to its values that are close to U concentrations for river input. MacDougall 1977 Aumento 1971
