This document provides information to U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)
Water Science Centers on interpreting and reporting radiological
results for samples of environmental matrices, most notably water.
The information provided is intended to be broadly useful
throughout the United States, but it is recommended that scientists
who work at sites containing radioactive hazardous wastes need to
consult additional sources for more detailed information. The
document is largely based on recognized national standards and
guidance documents for radioanalytical sample processing, most
notably the Multi-Agency Radiological Laboratory Analytical
Protocols Manual (MARLAP), and on documents published by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency and the American National Standards
Institute. It does not include discussion of standard USGS
practices including field quality-control sample analysis,
interpretive report policies, and related issues, all of which
shall always be included in any effort by the Water Science
Centers. The use of 'shall' in this report signifies a policy
requirement of the USGS Office of Water Quality.
