By T.R. Crompton

This practice-oriented guidebook collects approximately all tools released on account that 1975 at the chemical research of seawaters. particular descriptions of either classical and such a lot complicated physico-chemical and chemical suggestions together with forty five tables and forty eight figures make this quantity a useful resource for analysts, oceanographers, fisheries specialists, politicians and selection makers engaged in seawater environmental safety. The tools are offered in a logical demeanour in order that the reader can simply discover ways to practice them.

5. Adsorption on the containers was observed for storage periods of up to 75 d with the use of a NaI(Tl) well crystal. 3 Sample Preservation and Storage 25 antimony. 0 in polyethylene (excepting rubidium) or Pyrex glass (excepting silver). 5 eliminated adsorption on polyethylene but this was only partly effective with scandium and uranium. Pellenberg and Church [58] have discussed the storage and processing of estuarine water samples for analysis by atomic absorption spectrometry. Flegal and Stokes [59] have described a sample processing technique necessary for avoiding lead contamination of seawater samples prior to lead stable isotope measurements by thermal ionisation mass spectrometry.

9 shows the percentage loss as a function of time for silver, cadmium, and zinc from artificial seawater stored in polyethylene, borosilicate glass, PTFE at various pH and R values. 2 Cadmium Borosilicate glass 4 Cadmium in polyethylene and in PTFE, and zinc in polyethylene, R cm–1 = specific surface area. 9. 3 Sample Preservation and Storage 23 24 1 Sampling and Storage For arsenic (added as sodium arsenate) and selenium (added as sodium selenite), losses were insignificant in all the container materials considered, irrespective of matrix composition.

7 nmol/kg. 3. Salinity of seawater captured by various sampling devices in the CEPEX enclosure indicates problems not revealed in the usual oceanographic sampling situation. Relative to peristaltic pumping, all samples exhibited some salinity anomalies. Inadequate flushing to rinse the sampler of any concentrated brine or entrapped seawater is thought to be a problem. 4. Logistics and cleaning procedures are important factors in successful sampler intercomparison. 3 Sample Preservation and Storage 17 the performance of a certain type of sampler or analytical technique based on results of one set of tests, especially if procedures are changed.
