This effort demonstrated the use of field-portable instrumentation for the quantification of munitions constituents in groundwater, without the need to ship water samples to a fixed analytical laboratory. The results indicate that similar reporting limits can be obtained using the field-portable instrument when coupled to solid phase extraction sample preparation, yet instrument stability at the low concentration range is an issue. The instrumentation was tested on 28 groundwater samples for a… CONTINUE READING
