There are a lot more useful and appropriate purging and sampling device options available than the bailer! Learn what types of sampling devices are appropriate for a variety of analytical parameters, and which devices should never be used for some parameters. This series of two modules uses a comprehensive series of classroom and field videos to provide a detailed discussion of a wide range of devices available for purging and sampling ground-water monitoring wells, including their principles of operation, operational characteristics, materials of construction, and limitations. The discussions provide a framework for evaluating any device to determine its suitability and appropriateness for site-specific and individual well-specific applications. Field videos are included within each module to explain the operation and use of a variety of sampling devices. While you may opt to take just one of these modules, it is strongly recommended that you take both modules in the prescribed order if you want comprehensive coverage of the subject.
