Generating reference-quality water sample data involves procedures learned over years of experience. Some simple-to-implement aspects of practice do, however, lead to improved reliability and documentation of water sample data. These include: • For water sample data verification of the collection depth and unambiguous association of that depth with a unique sample identifier, understanding the degree to which the water which issued from the sampling spigot matched the characteristics of the ambient water from the collection level, verification that all data values associated with a water sample are correctly matched to the water sample identifier, and determination if the values for each parameter are correct. • Data evaluation must begin at sea. This is usually the only time all involved personnel and all records are together. Also, it is possible then to correct repetitive problems before they can further degrade the data. • The care of the data analyst and access to co.....
