Series Description: This record series contains analyses conducted by the Environmental Analytical Laboratory, also known as the Environmental Analysis Laboratories. Files are arranged numerically by request numbers from 6926 to 11388. Each file generally contains a "Request for Analytical Services," a "Control Worksheet," and a computer printout of results. Information includes the request number; the name, building, and phone number of the requestor; the desired analyses; concentration information; the name or initials of the person conducting the analysis; the sample code; original sample size (often given in milligrams); the dilution factor; the aliquot size; curve readings; completion date; and the results, which are often expressed in nanograms per milliliter. Some files also include graphs of results. Substances frequently appearing in this series include mercury, lithium, cerium, potassium, sodium, aluminum, magnesium, and organic acids. Isotopic analyses, such as for cesium-137, are infrequent but do appear among these records.
