Atlantic Seawater 75 Re 4   1.05       ng/kg Average values of rhenium in Atlantic seawater as given by Olafsson and Riley 1972. Samples that yield values given are from more than one location. No uncertainties were reported, therefore by analogy to other reports, uncertainties were calculated to 2s. Anbar et al. 1992 Olafsson & Riley 1972
Atlantic Seawater 75 Re 6.9   1.05       ng/kg Average values of rhenium in Atlantic seawater as given by Matthews and Riley 1972. No data was collected shallower than 200m. No uncertainties were reported, therefore by analogy to other reports, uncertainties were calculated to 2s. Anbar et al. 1992 Matthews & Riley 1970
Atlantic Seawater 90 Th       0.092 0.145     Thorium abundances in Atlantic seawater calculated according to mass spectrometric techniques following a 'double spike' approach first implimented by Dietz et al. 1962. All derived data concludes that Thorium content in open ocean waters is roughly equivalent to 0.1 pg/g, which coincidentally is what was discovered by various other references given in this study. Chen et al. 1986
