Our R&D resulted in:
- generic sampling procedures providing robust, standard approaches for sampling in different situations. With clear, unambiguous documentation this allows sampling procedures to be rapidly put together for specific programmes, supported by training and review, and backed by audit and data quality assessment procedures.
- a web-based, multi-user sampling coordination system to assist in identifying landings for sampling, manage the resulting data, and support training and auditing.
