This book presents statistical and data analysis tools that can be used by many chemists. The text is rooted in the author's own experience of analyzing large data sets ranging from sub-surface migration of chemical contaminants to atmospheric deposition. Among other things, the book presents guidelines for the development of analytical methods: the guidelines include methods of calculation of detection limits, calibration of instruments, calculation of the calibration curve, quality contol, measures of precision and accuracy. The book's audience includes analytical chemists and other chemists, senior laboratory technicians and others involved in collecting and understanding chemical data.
