  • SAMPLING PROBLEMS FOR THE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF SLUDGE, SOILS AND PLANTS. PROCEEDINGS OF A ROUND TABLE SEMINAR, HELD AT BORDEAUX (F) ON NOVEMBER 6-7, 1985.

Abstract

The necessity of analyzing inorganic and organic substances in environmental samples in the micro- and ultramicro-analytical ranges leads to higher requirements for accurate sampling. In answer to this demand, Working Party 2 of COST 681 since 1983 included the collection of experience and data on sampling methodology among its priority tasks. This work resulted in an overview set up by members of the Working Party 2 and raised the idea of collecting more practical experience during a special workshop on the sampling of sludges, soils and plants, covering a wide range of sludge contaminants in the food chain. The proceedings of this workshop which was organized by the CEC Directorate + General Science Research and Development, Environmental Research Programme, and held in Bordeaux, France, 6-7 November 1985 are contained in this volume. The contributions presented give an account of the experience of scientists and practicians involved in the work of COST 681 in the member countries of the Concerted Action and present a broad spectrum of the problems and their solutions. Although the present study cannot be considered as exhaustive, nevertheless it has indicative value and may be used as a basis in most research cases.
