Problem Solver

Use this problem solver to determine what technologies may be used to characterize your site. Select one or more of the following criterion and click on the Search button.

This table provides a general cross-reference only. Although the listed techniques can be used for the indicated analytical parameters and environmental media, potential users should investigate and weigh carefully whether a given technique is appropriate for their specific project. The performance of candidate technologies (e.g., sensitivity, bias, and precision) should be assessed through reference data or preferably, through pilot testing, relative to project data quality and decision quality objectives. Additional information on analytical technologies can be found at

Contaminants / Analytes

In addition to the search feature listed above, the table below provides a means for selecting technologies based on contaminant/analyte and media.
