More than 200 specimens from different occurrences of the Rogaland igneous complex and surrounding granulite facies metamorphic rocks (S. W. Norway) have been analysed by a direct non-destructive proton induced gamma-ray emission (PIGE) technique. The fluorine contents vary from <25 ppm to 3500 ppm. There is a good correlation between the concentration of fluorine and that of phosphorus for igneous rocks, suggesting a control of apatite on the F content. In metamorphic rocks, amphibole and biotite besides apatite are the principal cencentrators of fluorine indicating that fluorine in the system is controlled by granulite facies metamorphism conditions.

The oxygen and carbon concentrations on metal surfaces were determined by two methods. The first method was based on the detection
of the emitted particles in the12C(d,p)13C and16O(d, p)17O reactions, the second one on the measurement of the induced radioactivities in the12C(d,n)13N and16O(t,n)18F reactions, respectively. The results, obtained by the two different methods for high purity metals, were in agreement. A
type of error which exists in the determination of trace amounts of carbon and oxygen in pure metals by combustion and reductive
fusion was quantitatively demonstrated. This error exists also in the determination of oxygen by 14 MeV neutron bombardment.

Fifteen geochemical reference samples /GRS/ issued from the Geological Survey of Japan have been analyzed by an automated proton induced -ray emission /PIGE/ method for fluorine. Results of determinations are reported. Values are given for many GRS that have not previously been analyzed for fluorine.
