I. Simeonov et al. A. Lewandowski A well thought out SAP tells you what, where, when and how to collect samples, and defines procedures for analyzing the samples once they have been collected. It also helps to ensure that the data collected are of appropriate quality. The SAP therefore serves as an instruction manual for field and laboratory staff. But the SAP serves another very important purpose – development of the SAP forces one to ask and attempt to answer many important questions about the site in question.

Field duplicate samples are separate samples collected from the same sampling location; they provide an indication of sample variability (both due to site conditions and analytical variability). Laboratory split samples typically involve dividing the same individual sample in half after first ensuring it is well mixed, and sending the split samples to two different laboratories for analysis. This can provide an indication of variability of laboratory analysis (since, in theory, the two splits contain the same homogenous material).

The maximum depth that can be sampled will be soil-type dependent, both in terms of the difficulty in penetrating the ground and the ability to maintain the bore hole. For samples deeper than 7–10 m, a drill rig will likely be required. While requiring a more stable surface, larger footprint and better site access than hand sampling, the drill rig can allow for the collection of samples at much greater depth and can also facilitate the installation of groundwater sampling wells. It may also allow for continuous sampling of the soil profile from the ground surface downwards, which may be useful for understanding how soil strata affects contaminant levels.
