Abstract

Distributions of 17 major and trace metals were studied in two peat- forming environments in the Okefenokee Swamp. Samples of plant, water, and peat cores (at various levels) were analyzed. Distributions of metals were related to processes occurring in the origin(s) of coal and to constituents eventually found in coal. One of the major findings was that virtually all metals in fresh water coals could be accounted for in the peat-forming stage of coal formation.
