    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 04.08, 2013 Describes procedures for preserving soil samples immediately after they are obtained in the field and accompanying procedures for transporting and handling the samples.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 These practices cover procedures for preserving soil samples immediately after they are obtained in the field and accompanying procedures for transporting and handling the samples.

    1.2 Limitations - These practices are not intended to address requirements applicable to transporting of soil samples known or suspected to contain hazardous materials.

    This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. See Section 7.
