ASTM WK54455

    New Guide for Standard Guide for the Selection and Application of Analytical Procedures Used During Sediment Corrective Action

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E50.04 | Committee E50 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This guide will serve as a tool box of analytical methods used during the corrective action of contaminated sediment sites. Descriptions of the methods, their applicability, the pros/cons and limitations of their use will be presented.


    pore water, passive samplers, micro extraction, PDMS, SPME, bioavailability


    The Standard is needed to develop a consistent process or framework that can be utilized by practitioners with different experience levels regarding the analytical chemistry component of sediment corrective action programs. It will encourage consistent behaviors that will lead to a standard process that can be used to generate usable, cost effective analytical data commensurate with its intended use to address all sediment sites from a chemical analysis perspective.
