Major and selected trace element chemistry of fog water near coastline in the Atacama Desert, northern Chile
Elemental chemistry data for fog collected in a near-coastal region in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile are presented. These data complement the Sr isotopic data obtained for the same sample, and elemental and Sr isotopic data for surficial Holocene salt deposits. Elemental chemistry data is expressed in micromoles of X element per liter of fog sample.
Coverage Scope: Regional (Continents, Oceans)
Geographic Location: South America, Chile, Atacama Desert, Coastal Escarpment, Tarapacá Region, Pacific coastline
