Environmental analytical measurements are used for the determination of the transformation and transport of an environmental contaminant and for determination of its environmental concentration levels. A report entitled “Guidelines for Data Acquisition and Data Quality Evaluation in Environmental Chemistry” has been compiled by the ACS Committee on Environmental Improvement and Subcommittee on Environmental Analytical Chemistry.1 These guidelines represent a thorough and well-designed aid for use by an analytical chemist.
