Application of Different Sampling Procedures in Studies of Composition of Various Types of Runoff Waters—A Review
Critical Reviews in Analytical Chemistry
Runoff waters are one of the forms in which precipitation reaches the ground and surface waters. They are formed when rain or melting snow washes the surfaces of roofs, highways, agricultural areas or tree canopies. Pollutants present in runoff waters can constitute a potential danger to aquatic ecosystems. This paper reviews techniques and equipment for collecting runoff water. It discusses storage and preparation of samples for analysis (errors made on the stage of sampling, type of a sampled fraction—important step of analysis). This work presents bibliographic information about a wide range of inorganic and organic compounds in various form of runoff water (as a result of washing out pollutants from such surfaces as: highways, building roofs, and agricultural areas).
