A workshop on "Trends in Surface Water Analysis", organized by the Measurements and Testing Programme to discuss the trends expected in the field of inorganic and organic analysis of surface water, took place in Lisbon on 22-25 January 1994.

The analysis of surface waters for the determination of major and trace elements and organic compounds is nowadays required in the frame of some EU Directives for the monitoring of the quality of the environment. In this context, a series of interlaboratory studies over the last ten years has been carried out within the EU's specific programme of RTD in the field of measurement and testing (BCR).

The Lisbon event was organized in conjunction with the Empresa Portuguesa das Aguas Livres in Lisbon and discussed sampling techniques, storage, sample pre-treatment, final detection techniques and water analyses and EC regulations.

A selection of the papers presented at the conference will be published in a special issue of "The International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry" as well as "Trends in Analytical Chemistry".
