This WP deals with the methods applied for field samples collection and for laboratory samples processing and analysis.
Partners will apply the same processes according to a common strategy agreed in consortium for sampling and analysis. The aim of a common strategy is to avoid operational variability in field and in laboratory works in order to obtain comparable metal data to be used for the correlation studies in WP4.
In this sense, partners will apply the same guidelines for samples collection, treatment and delivery to the responsible partner of each analytical methodology: passive sampler devices (DGT type) to IFREMER for ICPMS analysis, water samples for filtration to CEFAS, subsamples of filtered water samples to IPMA for ICPMS analysis and to IST for voltammetry analysis.
WP 5 Actions
- Action 5.1: Protocols
- Action 5.2: Field campaigns for DGTs deployments and water sampling
- Action 5.3: Chemical analysis of metals in DGTs by ICPMS
- Action 5.4: Chemical analysis of metals in water samples by ICPMS and by voltammetry
- Action 5.5: DGT interlaboratory analysis for the development of a DGT expert lab network
This WP 5 is led by Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science, CEFAS-UK.
