Abstract: In response to a call for observatory programs by the FUSE project in early 2002, a survey of hot white dwarfs located in a region of the sky more easily accessible by FUSE was initiated. This survey program included 42 hot white dwarfs with well defined atmospheric properties and, when possible, a history of ultraviolet observations. The goals were to search for new objects showing interesting metal abundance patterns over a wide range of effective temperatures and make an independent determination of their atmospheric parameters. We present a summary of results from this survey and discuss the peculiar pattern of metal abundances detected in some stars.
