About this book

As the scientific community moves toward a greater awareness and understanding of the ocean's role in global changes, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of networked monitoring stations to obtain in-situ data.

This book serves as a source of practical guidelines and know-how in the analysis of seawater. It presents analytical methodologies with step-by-step guidelines to help practitioners implement these methods quickly and reliably. With coverage of such topics as blank estimation, statistical evaluation, and control of recoveries, the text provides essential information for developing and improving quality control and quality assurance programs in the lab.
