EPA’s Selected Analytical Methods for Environmental Remediation and Recovery (SAM) lists this method for confirmatory analysis when a sample exists in a refractory form (i.e., non-digestible or dissolvable material after normal digestion methods) or if there is a matrix interference problem. In these cases, SAM recommends this method for qualitative determination and confirmatory analysis of americium-241; californium-252; curium-244; plutonium-238 and -239, uranium-234, uranium-235 or uranium-238 in drinking water, aqueous/liquid, soil/sediment, surface wipes and air filter samples.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
