This page contains information about the Inorganic Superfund Methods (ISM02.2) Statement of Work (SOW).

General Information

ISM02.2 defines the analytical methods for the isolation, detection, and quantitative measurement of 23 metals and cyanide in aqueous/water and soil/sediment samples, and total metals analysis in wipes. The SOW also includes Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) and Synthetic Precipitation Leaching Procedure (SPLP) leachate extraction procedures. Analyses are performed using Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES), Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS), Cold Vapor Atomic Absorption (CVAA), and colorimetric techniques.
