Contents Notes
Preface -- 1990 ACS committee on environmental improvement -- Acknowledgements -- I. ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLING -- Introduction to environmental sampling -- 1. Planning sampling protocols -- 2. Quality assurance and quality control -- 3. Sampling water matrices -- 4. Sampling air matrices -- 5. Sampling biological matrices -- 6. Sampling solids, liquids, and sludges -- II. ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS -- Introduction to environmental analysis -- 7. Planning analytical protocols -- 8. Quality assurance and quality control -- 9. Analytical measurements -- 10. Documentation and reporting. This concise book covers all the critical aspects of environmental sampling and analysis. Extensively peer-reviewed by scientists from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other government agencies, industry and academia, it is packed with practical advice and tips from renowned experts. Planning, sampling, analysis, QA/QC, and reporting are discussed for air, water, solid liquid, and biological samples, with emphasis on the interdependence between sampling and analytical activities. Special requirements for sampling devices, containers, and preservatives are provided with convenient checklists for sampling plans and protocols. New and revised recommendations involving method detection levels, reliable detection levels, and levels of quantitation are discussed in conjunction with laboratory reports and user presentations of data near analytical detection limits.
