Abstract

This report discusses the eighth intercomparison exercise since 1991 of a project which connects laboratories working in different areas. The number of participating laboratories has increased from 72 in 1991 to 188 in the present exercise.

Artificial rainwater samples, with concentrations close to the values ordinarily measured in Northern Italy, and a solution of sodium hydrogen carbonate stabilized with chloroform, were prepared in September 1998 by the Environment Institute of the Joint research centre, Ispra, and the results elaborated jointly with the CNR instituto Italiano di Idrobiologica, Pallanza. Homogeneity and stability tests were performed to check the reliability of the samples..
