dc.description.abstract Thirty samples from the West Franklin Limestone were dissolved and analyzed via ayomic absorption technique. Ca, Mg, Fe, Sr, and Mn percentages were determined. Results indicated that this limestone was homogenous and contains intrasample, sample-to-sample, and sample-to-population variation. Residual compoennts were significant in sample-to-sample variation, apparent for 40 percent of the sample sections. Variation in this limestone was correlated for percent content of Ca and Mg and northerly distance. A positive correlation (r = 0.298 for Ca and r = 0.259 for Mg) was found. Variation was recorded in 35 percent of the samples' Ca content and 30 percent of the samples' Mg content. These data are interpreted to mean that variation in this limestone is existent; this existence was not found in high percentages. en_US
