Reliability of geochemical data: How do we know?
This one day workshop will introduce the following key themes for assessing the quality of geochemical data • Discuss the latest practices for the production of “reliable” geochemical data that are associated with small measurement uncertainties. • Provide an overview of method validation, and the proper use of reference materials. • Describe the role of measurement uncertainty and how it is effected by such issues as sample preparation, sample heterogeneity and data acquisition. • Highlight the role of the IAG and its support of the geoanalytical community.
