Andersen, Charles B.
Journal of Geoscience Education, v49 n4 p351-357 Sep 2001
Introduces the analysis of a river as an excellent way to teach geochemical techniques because of the relative ease of sample collection and speed of sample analysis. Focuses on the potential sources of sample contamination during sampling, filtering, and bottle cleaning processes, and reviews methods to reduce and detect contamination. Includes 15 references.
