Abstract

This section of chapter 5 of the National Field Manual for the Collection of Water-Quality Data (NFM) describes the field procedures for collecting small-volume samples using a syringe-tip filtration method. The samples are sent to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water Quality Laboratory (NWQL) for analysis of organic compounds by direct aqueous injection high-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (DAI LC-MS/MS). The DAI LC-MS/MS method was developed specifically for NWQL analytical schedules 2437 (pesticides) and 2440 (pharmaceuticals) and should not be considered transferrable or applicable to other types of samples to be analyzed using methods other than those that use DAI LC-MS/MS or other tandem mass spectrometry methods.
