Maybe someone should do a soil check in the Simpson desert or test Antarctic snowfall?
EOF1 accounts for "53% of the total variance in the trace elements and is heavily loaded with the elements Fe, Al, Mn, Cs, Ba, Bi, V, Ti and the rareearth elements (REE) Ho and Er (79–89%). Based on the elemental composition and EF calculations, EOF1 appears to represent a dust source signal.
I just want to point out what might be the most important remark made on this thread which disproves the existence of aluminum/barium laced contrails/chemtrails:

I saw what Dr. Thyme said about the sample. I don't see anything about a "cap" in that quote but I get the impression he could be talking more about foot, ski, or snowmobile traffic than transported dust (which they couldn't really do anything about).
Interesting though, the snow melt sample posted on line is 368 μg/L.
Probably not chaff. Chaff comes in the form of fibers 0.3 to 2 inches long. If it had been present in the snow melt it probably would have been noticeable as such.
Chaff disintegrates on land.
Animals can inhale chaff particles, but the particles do not penetrate far into the respiratory system and can be easily cleared out.
Yes, I quoted an ATPL holding pilot who flew for a commercial airlines, and who brought up a very valid point. Aluminum causes radar reflections, clouds do not. If they were “spraying” us with aluminum, it would cause radar returns and show up like the chaff does on weather radar that we can all publicly see.

Aluminum is used in chaff. It creates radar reflections. Chaff is designed to confuse radar homing missiles. Thats why fighter planes use it. Its not rocket science.
Aluminum is a common element in soils, however radar looks at the sky, not the ground. Unless somone is throwing soil up in the air, the ground doesn't tend to cause massive problems to ground based radar looking at the sky.
Both of those are common sense things. A little common sense is required when thinking about this subject.
