This series of manuals on techniques describes methods used by the U.S. Geological Survey for planning and executing water-resources investigations. The material is grouped 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 the Determination of Organic Substances in Water and Fluvial Sediments" is the third chapter to be published under Section A of Book 5. The chapter number includes the letter of the section.
This manual was prepared by many chemists and hydrologists of the U.S. Geological Survey and provides accurate and precise methods for the analysis of water, water-suspended-sediment mixtures, and bottom-material samples . Supplements, to be prepared as the need arises, will be issued as they become available.

This manual is a revision of "Methods for Analysis of Organic Substances in Water" by D.F. Goerlitz and Eugene Brown (U.S. Geological Survey Techniques of Water-Resources Investigations, Book 5, Chapter A3, 1972).
