The London Earth field survey : collection of samples and data

By Paul Everett

Abstract

The London Earth field survey followed a systematic sampling approach to collect a\ud representative suite of soil samples from across the capital. Samples were taken from a\ud variety of land uses, in order to ensure a robust, unbiased dataset which will represent\ud the baseline geochemistry of the city’s environment.\ud In addition to the collection of samples, important accompanying information including\ud observations about the soil and details for each sampling site were recorded. This data\ud is an important aspect of the survey as it allows us to assess the site and supports\ud interpretation of the geochemical results.\ud The combination of the geochemical survey and related field observations provides\ud a comprehensive data resource which will provide valuable information for land-use\ud planning and development applications such as urban regeneration and contaminated\ud land assessments
