Abstract : The purpose of the sampling and chemical analysis quality assurance program is to establish and maintain laboratory practices to ensure the scientific reliability and compatibility of laboratory data generated in support of the USATHAMA programs. This document outlines the purpose, policies, organization, and operations established to support the chemical analyses conducted for USATHAMA. The specific objectives of the QA program are to: (1) estimate the level of quality of each analytical system; (2) assist in the early recognition of deficiencies; (3) enable the field laboratory to take that action which is necessary to ensure the validity of data; (4) require sufficient documentation to verify the credibility of the quality of data. jg
