Abstract

This article presents magnetic mineral characteristics, trace metals, and REE geochemistry of river sediments that serve as inlets to Lake Limboto, Sulawesi, Indonesia related to article entitled “Lithogenic and anthropogenic components in surface sediments from Lake Limboto as shown by magnetic mineral characteristics, trace metals, and REE geochemistry” [1]. River sediments were obtained from three rivers, namely Alopohu, Bionga, and Talumelito. Sieved sediments were subjected to magnetic susceptibility measurements as well as geochemical analyses that include AAS analyses for trace metals and ICP-OES for REE. Extracted magnetic grains were also subjected to magnetic hysteresis analyses as well as XRD and SEM analyses. These data are invaluable in identifying the contribution of each river (and its catchment area) to the surface sediments of Lake Limboto.
