Trace Amounts is a song included in the Halo: Original Soundtrack. It plays in the Halo: Combat Evolved level The Library. This piece contains electronically generated sounds and a relatively slow tempo. The ominous tone reflects the library's dark past.
- The name "trace amounts" is a reference to the effects that the Flood has on an atmosphere, according to the monitor of Installation 04, 343 Guilty Spark. When scientists refer to the contents of an atmosphere they say, for example, 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen, and "trace amounts" of other gases.
