Often too little attention is given to the sampling before and after actual instrumental measurement. This leads to errors, despite increasingly sensitive analytical systems.

This is one of the first books to pay proper attention to representative sampling. It offers an overview of the most common techniques used today for taking environmental samples. The techniques are clearly presented, yield accurate and reproducible results and can be used to sample

- air
- water
- soils and sediments
- plants and animals.

A comprehensive handbook, this volume provides an excellent starting point for researchers in the rapidly expanding field of environmental analysis.
