A Rapid And Accurate Method For The Analysis Of Calcium Carbonate In Small Samples

Bruce F. Molnia (2)


A method which permits rapid and accurate analysis of calcium carbonate by weight loss-acid digestion is presented. The method permits analysis where only small weight samples are available, such as deep sea cores, but can also be used with larger samples. The technique makes use of a commercially available bacterial filter apparatus and plastic or nitrocellulose filter discs.
