An analytical method for measurement of asbestos fiber concentration in water samples is described. Fibers are classified using selected area electron diffraction and energy dispersive X-ray analysis. Measurement of characteristic features on a recorded and calibrated selected area electron diffraction pattern is specified for precise identification of chrysotile. Quantitative determination of the chemical composition, and quantitative interpretation of at least one calibrated zone azis selected area diffraction pattern are specified for precise identification of amphibole. Amphibole identification procedures and generation of the standard reporting format specified for the fiber count results are achieved using two computer programs that are integral to the analytical method.
