Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
A portable X-Ray Fluorescence spectrometer (pXRF) has been utilized in multiple projects to characterize near-total geochemistry and provides results similar to fusion and multi-acid methods. PXRF analyses can provide near-instantaneous elemental composition of sediments, with minimal sample preparation and at low cost.
