U.S. EPA. Standardized Analytical Methods for Environmental Restoration Following Homeland Security Events (SAM) 5.0, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-04/126E, 2009.
The premise and purpose of this document is to standardize the analytical methods that will be used in cases when multiple laboratories are called on to analyze environmental samples following a homeland security event (i.e., CBR crime/attack). The document also is intended as a tool that will be available to assist state and local laboratories in planning for and analyzing environmental samples following a homeland security event.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
