At the National Environmental Monitoring Conference (NEMC) in New Orleans last month, two of our BAL scientists presented in the session “Metals and Metals Speciation Analysis of Environmental Samples”. Annie Carter’s presentation focused on the determination of elemental mercury in soils by selective volatilization, while Brian Smith’s presentation described a method comparison for the analysis of bioaccessible lead and arsenic in soils. Contact us today to learn more about either of these recently developed methods!
At this year’s National Environmental Monitoring Conference, BAL’s Vice President, Annie Carter will be chairing two sessions on “Metals and Metals Speciation Analysis in Environmental Samples.” The conference will take place August 6th – 10th in New Orleans, LA, and due to “overwhelming demand,” the topic had to split onto two different days, the 7th and the 9th. We love hearing other people are as excited about metals analysis as we are! In addition, Annie will be presenting on “Determining Elemental Mercury in Soils by Selective Volatilization” on Tuesday morning and our Trace Metals Group Lead, Brian Smith, will be presenting on “Method Comparison for Bioaccessible Lead and Arsenic in Soils” in the Tuesday session. Please come attend one or both of the sessions or Contact Us if you would like more information.
If you follow our newsletters, you probably have noticed that BAL staff have had a busy winter and spring attending and presenting at many conferences around the country and even overseas. In case you missed any of the announcements or would like a copy of the presentations, here is a recap:
In February, Jamie Fox, presented at the Energy, Utility & Environment Conference in San Diego on Wastewater Selenium Chemistry in Bioreactor Treatment Systems (contact Jamie for a copy of the presentation). Also in February, two of our scientists, Dr. Hakan Gürleyük and Tamas Ugrai, presented at the European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry in Austria. Hakan spoke about the Determination of radium in natural waters using IC-ICP-MS after on-line preconcentration (contact us for a copy of the presentation), while Tamas presented on Reducing the risk of inaccurate results when quantifying trace elements in seawater using ICP-QQQ-MS.
In March, Elizabeth Madonick, presented a poster at the AEHS Foundation’s International Conference on Soil, Water, Energy, and Air in San Diego on Reducing the Risk of Inaccurate Results When Quantifying Trace Elements in Seawater.
And then last month, Jamie presented at the Department of Defense Environmental Monitoring and Data Quality Workshop in Phoenix on Advances in Detection of Hexavalent Chromium, while Michelle Briscoe presented the same week at the ACIL Policies and Practices Meeting in Washington, D.C. on Reducing the Risk of Staff Turnover: Developing Great Managers and Culture.
Stay tuned for future conference announcements and presentations through our newsletter. Hope to see you out on the road!
