ry of domestic geographic names information.

Be sure to check out the FAQs on the GNIS web site and find out: "What is the most frequently occurring name?" and "What is the longest community name?" The U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) is a Federal body created in 1890 and established in its present form by Public Law in 1947. The Board is authorized to establish and maintain uniform geographic name usage throughout the Federal Government (and the USGS serves in the role of Executive Secretary for the Board). Sharing its responsibilities with the Secretary of the Interior, the Board has developed principles and procedures governing the use of both domestic and foreign geographic names as well as underseas and Antarctic feature names.

Website Shows What's in the Dirt Data from chemical analyses of more than 60,000 stream-sediment and soil samples from all 50 States are now available at http://tin.er.usgs.gov/geochem/doc/home.htm. These data will be used to determine naturally occurring levels of chemical elements in stream sediments, and to detect regional chemical anomalies that may affect human health. This is one phase of a larger project to collect geologic, geochemical, geophysical, and mineral locality information for the entire country. The National Geochemical Survey website includes analyses of samples archived from previous USGS studies, and of samples collected by USGS scientists in collaboration with State and other federal agencies, academia, and industry. All of the samples were analyzed using similar methods, assuring that the data are consistent for 42 elements, including potentially toxic elements such as mercury, arsenic, selenium, and lead.

For more information, call Andrew Grosz at 703-648-6314 or Jeffrey Grossman at 703-648-6184.
