  1. See Certified Reference Material (CRM) certificates issued by NBL for major and minor isotope ratios. The presumed spike solutions (SP2, SP3, SP4) were calculated by diluting (factors of 5, 8, 33 times) the known quantities of SP1 (original spike solution weight is ca. 20 g). The relative atomic mass and the atom fractional abundances of 235U and 238U in the simulated solutions remain unchanged. SP1 Spike 1-original stock-, SP2 Spike 2, SP3 Spike 3, SP4 Spike 4, SA sample-treated as unknown-; for the abbreviations, see the Table 6
