3. Place the auger in the PVC tubing and turn the handle. This should allow the auger to collect soil. Once the auger is filled, remove from the ground and place the collected soil in a plastic bag. A sub-sample of the soil is then transferred into a pre-labelled and pre-cleaned glass jar. The lid is then placed on the jar and the sample stored on ice prior to returning to the laboratory. 4. Repeat Step 3, until the required depth has been achieved. 3 Types of augers used for soil sampling: (a) twin blade; (b) corkscrew.

1 What problems may occur when a sample is stored? Answer The concern with the storage of samples is that losses can occur, due to adsorption to the storage vessel walls, or that potential contaminants can enter the sample, from desorption or leaching from the storage vessels.

This allows the precision of the method to be reported. 12 40 35 30 25 20 15 10 5 0 10 Signal (mV) Signal (mV) • Maintenance of control charts. Various types of control charts can be maintained for standards, reagent blanks and replicate analytes. The purpose of each type of chart is to assess the longer-term performance of the laboratory, instrument, operator or procedure, based on a statistical approach. 4 Plots for linear dynamic range determinations (cf. 2). 100 Investigative Approach for Sample Preparation 25 Summary This chapter has considered the various aspects of planning the experimental work, introducing the concepts of quality assurance, accuracy and precision, and certified reference materials.
