Abstract:  The spectrochemical determination of the investigated elements in silicate rocks is normally performed in one procedure together with the determination of other microelements. The most intensive spectral lines of Sc and Y, which are of ionic character, are compared with atomic lines of the internal reference element (Pd). In the present work a procedure enabling the treatment of scatter diagrams obtained using results of parallel determinations of contents of the above elements and further elements giving atomic spectral lines in a set of granitoid and basic rock samples is described. On the basis of the obtained results the sense of some parameters of scatter diagrams is cleared in relation to the attained precision of the determination and in regard to the character of the measured spectral lines, as well as to the changes in the composition of the matrix.
