Abstract
The report gives results of an evaluation of the effects of typical shipping and storage handling procedures on organic materials collected in Level 1 environmental assessment (EA) studies. Parameters reviewed included: sample container composition (amber glass and high-density linear polyethylene), head space composition (air or nitrogen), temperature (38C, 21C, and 5C), lighting (dark and diffuse sunlight), and catalytic species content. Three sample sets, representing fractions obtained during a Level 1 EA and containing six model organic compounds, were used. A simulated 3-week shipping and storage cycle represented elapsed time between sample collection and analysis. All three experiments were in accordance with statistical principles appropriate for conducting factorial experiments. Experimental results were analyzed using analysis of variance, to assess the relative effect of each shipping/storage condition studied.

Contents Notes
The results of a study designed to evaluate the effects of typical shipping and storage handling procedures on organic materials collected in Level 1 studies are presented. Specific parameters reviewed include sample container composition (amber glass and high density linear polyethylene), head space composition (air or nitrogen), temperature (38 [degree] C, 21 [degree] C, 5 [degree] C), lighting condition (dark and diffuse sunlight) and catalytic species content. Three unique sample sets, representative of fractions obtained during a Level 1 environmental assessment, were formulated containing six model organic compounds. A three-week simulated shipping and storage cycle was used as representative of elapsed time between sample collection and analysis. All three experiments were designed in accordance with statistical principles appropriate for conducting factorial experiments. Experimental results were analyzed by the Analysis of Variance technique in order to assess the relative effect of each shipping/storage condition studied.
