Abstract

Abstract The Savannah River Laboratory has developed a versatile, computerized data recording, processing, updating, and retrieval system for handling an expected 150 million bytes of hydrogeochemical data from 150,000 to 200,000 sample sites through the next four years. A subsystem accounts for the movements of samples from initial receipt through final storage. Approximately 6 million sample movements are expected. Two- and three-dimensional plots of sampled geographic areas showing concentrations and locations of individual chemical elements are displayed and reproduced photographically. Pattern recognition techniques enable multivariate data to be categorized into ‘clusters’ which indicate sites favorable for uranium exploration.
