A thorough knowledge of the spectral emission characteristics of the inductively coupled plasma is a prerequisite for its maximum utilization in atomic emission spectroscopy. Toward this end an <i>Atlas of Spectral Information for Inductively Coupled Plasma, Atomic Emission Spectroscopy</i> has been assembled to provide the analyst with the basic information concerning the analytical capabilities and the potential spectral interferences of the prominent spectral lines of 70 elements. The <i>Atlas</i> contains 232 wavelength scans of 70 elements covering the range of 189 to 517 nm (189 to 597 nm for sodium and the reference blank). The <i>Atlas</i> also contains a listing of 973 prominent lines with estimated detection limits and a detailed collection of coincidence profiles for 281 of the most prominent lines, each with profiles of ten of the most prevalent concomitant elements superimposed. This paper contains a survey of the spectral information contained in the <i>Atlas</i>.
