ABSTRACT

This presentation will examine the sampling methods currently in use for collecting samples for dissolved gases. Are these methods capturing the dissolved gases present in water bodies appropriately? Closed system sampling methods will be examined and discussed. Closed systems for sampling available in ASTM and API methods will be discussed for future evaluations and comparison to current practices.
