During the workshop, various sampling techniques, statistical approach to sampling, handling of samplers, types of containers for sample storage and analytical methods for the determination of environmental contaminants will be presented.
Good sampling practice should guarantee the taking of samples representing the contaminated area and can help to identify sources of pollution. Risk analysis of contaminated site can be prepared and remediation measures can be proposed at the site based on the sample analysis.
