Preface

A series of chapters on techniques describes methods used by the U.S. Geological Survey for planning and conducting water-resources investigations. The material is arranged under major subject headings called books and is further subdivided into sections and chapters. Book 5 is on laboratory analyses; section A is on water. The unit of publication, the chapter, is limited to a narrow field of subject matter. "Methods for Determination of Inorganic Substances in Water and Fluvial Sediments" is the first chapter under section A of book 5. The chapter number includes the letter of the section.

This chapter was prepared with the assistance of many chemists and hydrologists of the U.S. Geological Survey as a means of documenting and making available the methods used by the U.S. Geological Survey to analyze water, water-sediment mixtures, and sediment samples.

This chapter supersedes "Methods for Determination of Inorganic Substances in Water and Fluvial Sediments" by M. W. Skougstad, M. J. Fishman, L. C. Friedman, D. E. Erdmann, and S. S. Duncan (U.S. Geological Survey Techniques of Water-Resources Investigation, book 5, chapter Al, 1979) and "A Supplement to Methods for the Determination of Inorganic Substances in Water and Fluvial Sediments" by M. J. Fishman and W. L. Bradford (U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 82-272, 1982).
