White, R.E., 1974: Depletion of interstellar sodium and calcium. Astrophys. J., 187, 449-452, doi:10.1086/152653.

New measurements of the Ca II/Ca I ratios in interstellar clouds lead to the conclusion that not only Ca, but also Na, is underabundant in these regions. Recent calculations of element depletion by accretion of atoms onto dust grains probably cannot account for the observed abundance range. The extreme underabundance of Ca, and some part of the abundance range, probably reflects the composition of the grain cores.
