Abstract : This manual gives guidance on how to collect and process soil samples to quantify explosives, propellants, and metals from nonoperational ranges under remedial investigation. This document outlines how to estimate the average concentration of energetic compounds and metals in soils and determine the error in the estimated concentration. Since this guidance is for a remedial investigation, we assume that the Site Investigation has identified areas that need further study.
