Plant the Seed… in the field

How do you plan a successful project in the field, so that you can ensure data usability? What QA Measures need to be considered in designing the Conceptual Site Model? Learn from a tenured field expert on how to set-up, plan, schedule and perform successful field operations. Also hear tales of actual issues encountered so you can avoid some of the common (or not so common) mistakes.

Watch it Grow… in the laboratory

What happens with quality when your samples arrive at the laboratory? How are Data Quality Objectives monitored and assured? What are some typical pitfalls with laboratory analysis and how can they be avoided? Hear from a laboratory Technical Director with over 35 years of testing experience.

Harvest the Crop…and use your data

Now that the data is generated, how do you determine that it is usable? What are some data validation techniques for reviewing your data? Examine some data disasters and learn how to overcome them and avoid issues by listening to a senior-level Quality Assurance Officer.
