Glossary entry:Sampling and analysis
Meaning in EUGRIS: the collection and analyses of soil, water, air, building samples as well as geological, hydrogeological, and hydrological data. Sampling is to describe the contamination, the soil, and the groundwater to such an extent that risk analyses may be carried out, and so that there is an adequate foundation for planning and executing necessary remediation. Analysing soil and water samples is to identify the degree of contamination in the area being investigated. The collection depends entirely on the result of the initial survey as well as the requirements for the data which are to be used in connection with the subsequent risk assessment.
