AbstractMicrobeam analyses can be used to determine the morphology, texture, size, and abundance of smelter dust trapped in humus. Smelter dust is classified into two morphotypes and five classes on the basis of texture and element associations. Size and abundance of dusts were compiled at six sites at varied distances from the smelter. The distribution of dust reflects the geochemical signature of anthropogenic input to the humus. Notable differences in dust morphology, texture, and size suggest that part of the dust accumulation is historical and may reflect changes in smelting practice and process through time. Particles preserved in humus represent the resistant component of smelter dust. The labile dust, observed in modern emissions, is not present.
