 · In the maps, the spatial distribution of each element or mineral is shown either by an interpolated and smoothed average color surface map or a proportional symbol map. Color classes were chosen by the authors using percentiles of the analytically determined values for each element and mineral. The interpolated grid cell values are thus portioned into 10 classes …
