A consultant for the Technical review of Environmental info offers the perception you wish for comparing analytical information got from environmental samples. usually, analyses played on a couple of samples may end up in lost main issue at the incorrect analytes. for instance, a geologist could recognize which hint metals will be clearly found in the resource rock underlying a website, yet now not recognize which metals can be anticipated due to tire put on or which polynuclear fragrant hydrocarbons will be current due to a close-by powerplant. This booklet provide you with references to aid determination making concerning choice of contaminants.

Example text

In reality, the arsenic measured on air particulates was simply the amount naturally associated with local soils. The reporter, not realizing that arsenic was naturally occurring, saw a report that contained the data and assumed that any arsenic was the result of contamination. The purpose of this book, therefore, is to prevent problems such as those described from occurring. An important consideration in compiling this text was to provide data reviewers with references to support decision-making regarding the selection of contaminants of concern.

The interpretation of geochemical data has a single goal: to identify which values are from the background population and which are from anomalous populations with elevated concentrations, such as contaminated soil. Methods used for the interpretation of geochemical data must permit the identification of different populations (Rose et al. 1979). A geochemical population is the set of concentrations of an element that represents the statistical regularities of the distribution of the element in a particular formation (Beus and Grigorian 1977).

Curve B is the probability plot of a sample drawn from a normal population with a mean of 27 and standard deviation of 8. The values range from 10 to 49, so there is some overlap in the two data sets. Because these two data sets are from normal populations, they plot as straight lines. Combining the two data sets and recalculating the cumulative frequencies results in the curve designated A + B. This curve consists of two straight-line segments connected by a steeply sloping segment in the central part of the curve.
