Description:The element data given here for two species of rabbitbrush (genus Chrysothamnus) are being used in a joint geochemical/remote-sensing study to try to detect any surface expression of these partially concealed geothermal fields. The study area encompasses the northern part of the San Luis Valley, Colorado between 38 7 30 -38 15N latitudes and about 105 47 30"-106 W longitudes in Saguache County (fig. 1). The elevation of the sample sites ranges from about 7,600 ft (2,320 m) at San Luis Creek along the valley floor to 9,200 ft (2,800 m) in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Range just above the Sangre de Cristo bounding fault. Elevation was reported as the range 2,300- 2,900. The maximum elevation value was entered into the surface elevation field.
