The data set available here provides spectra for a solution of benzene in methanol recorded from 230-290 nm using a Perkin-Elmer Lambda 4B spectrophotometer at different combinations of slit width, scan rate, and response time. The original spectra were collected in the late 1980s and print copies archived. To create this data set, the spectra were [...]
Control charts were originally developed in the 1920s as a quality assurance tool for the control of manufactured products. Although there are many types of control charts, the most common in a quality assessment program is a property control chart in which we record single measurements. A property control chart is a sequence of points, each [...]
Illustrated here is an example of a prescriptive approach to quality assurance for laboratories monitoring waters and wastewaters, adapted from Environmental Monitoring and Support Laboratory, U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, “Handbook for Analytical Quality Control in Water and Wastewater Laboratories,” March 1979. Two samples, A and B, are collected at the sample site. Sample A is split [...]
