NSI Topsoil Chlorine

The map covers England and Wales showing interpolated values of topsoil Chlorine concentrations (mg/kg) at a 1km grid resolution.

The concentrations of chlorine were determined using wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometry; we cannot provide a lower limit of detection of or coefficient of variation for this element.
