  • Sample Handling Strategies for Accurate Lead-In-Soil Measurements in the Field and Laboratory

    ABSTRACT The inhomogenous lead-in-soil matrix can present serious obstacles to accurate sample collection and handling. In typical lead-in-soil measurement, particle size related errors in sampling and sample handling often exceed all other sources of error. The magnitude of error can vary widely depending on the particulate nature of the lead contaminant and the effectiveness of control ...

  • Methodologies and protocols for the collection of midwave and longwave infrared emissivity spectra using a portable field spectrometer

    Abstract The development of highly portable field devices for measuring midwave and longwave infrared emissivity spectra has greatly enhanced the ability of scientists to develop and verify exploitation algorithms designed to operate in these spectral regions. These data, however, need to be collected properly in order to prove useful once the scientists return from the field. Attention to ...

  • Comparing Field Portable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) To Laboratory Analysis Of Heavy Metals In Soil

    ABSTRACT Field portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) continues to gain acceptance as a complement to traditional laboratory testing of metal contaminated soil. The quality of data produced by field XRF varies with site conditions, soil composition, and sample preparation. Quality assurance protocols for the field method usually require that a number of field samples be split and sent to a ...
