This document describes the principles for the measurement of the activity of 90Sr in equilibrium with 90Y and 89Sr, pure beta emitting radionuclides, in soil samples. Different chemical separation methods are presented to produce strontium and yttrium sources, the activity of which is determined using proportional counter (PC) or liquid scintillation counter (LSC). 90Sr can be obtained from the test samples when the equilibrium between 90Sr and 90Y is reached or through direct 90Y measurement. The selection of the measuring method depends on the origin of the contamination, the characteristics of the soil to be analysed, the required accuracy of measurement and the resources of the available laboratories.

These methods are used for soil monitoring following, past or present, accidental or routine, liquid or gaseous discharges. It also covers the monitoring of contamination caused by global fallout.

In case of recent fallout immediately following a nuclear accident, the contribution of 89Sr to the total amount of strontium activity will not be negligible. This standard provides the measurement method to determine the activity of 90Sr in presence of 89Sr.

The test methods described in this document can also be used to measure the radionuclides in sludge, sediment, construction material and products following proper sampling procedure[2][3][4][5][6][7].

Using samples sizes of 20 g and counting times of 1 000 min, detection limits of 0,1 to 0,5 Bq.kg-1 can be achievable for 90Sr using conventional and commercially available proportional counter or liquid scintillation counter when the presence of 89Sr can be neglected. If 89Sr is present in the test sample, detection limits of 1 to 2 Bq.kg-1 can be obtained for both 90Sr and 89Sr using the same sample size, counting time and proportional counter or liquid scintillation counter as in the previous situation.

This International Standard specifies performance requirements and test methods under prescribed laboratory conditions for the evaluation of pumped samplers used in conjunction with an air sampling pump and of procedures using these samplers for the determination of gases and vapours in workplace atmospheres.

NOTE For the sampling of semi-volatile compounds which can appear as a mixture of vapours and airborne particles in workplace atmospheres see EN 13936.

This International Standard is applicable to pumped samplers and measuring procedures using these samplers in which sampling and analysis are carried out in separate stages.

This International Standard is not applicable to:

— pumped samplers which are used for the direct determination of concentrations, for example, length-of-stain detector tubes;

— samplers which rely on sorption into a liquid, and subsequent analysis of the solution (bubblers).

This document specifies a method for the determination of fish acute toxicity using the permanent cell line from rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) gill, RTgill-W1. Cells in confluent monolayers in 24-well tissue culture plates are exposed to water samples, such as surface waters or different kinds of effluents, or to chemicals for 24 h and thereafter, cell viability is assessed based on fluorescent cell viability indicator dyes (see 4.1). Data are then expressed as % of unexposed control and toxicity quantified based on % cell viability vs. % effluent or chemical concentration response curves (see Clause 9).

This document specifies methods for the measurements of magnetic susceptibility of soils (κ) as an indicator of soil pollution with trace elements associated with Technogenic Magnetic Particles (TMPs) and describes related procedures, protocols and guidelines to be applied as a screening geophysical method of evaluation of soil pollution with trace elements. The results of measurements are used for preparing the maps of magnetic susceptibility of soils in the area of interest. From these maps, the areas of elevated and high magnetic susceptibility indicating high trace element total pollution load are discriminated for further identification of pollutants by geochemical methods.

This document is applicable to screening all TMPs-related anthropogenic emission sources including long-range transport of airborne elements, of which TMPs are carriers and indicators. Such emission sources comprise the majority of high-temperature industrial processes, where iron is present in any mineralogical form in raw materials, additives or fuels, is transformed into ferrimagnetic iron oxides (e.g. fossil solid and liquid fuels combustion, metallurgy, cement and ceramics industry, coke production, industrial waste landfills, land transport, etc.). This document is not applicable to screening anthropogenic emissions not associated with TMPs, e.g. organic pollutants or emissions from agricultural sources

NOTE Copper, zinc and other non-ferrous metal ores also contain iron (in many sulfides) as this element is abundant in almost all environments. During smelting, the iron occurring in sulfides is transformed into ferrimagnetic oxides (TMPs). However, in such cases, the proportion of TMPs and related PTEs is usually less than that at coal combustion or iron metallurgy, for example, and not all PTEs are physically associated and transported by TMPs. Non-airborne elements are deposited in the close proximity of the emission source, while TMPs can be used in these cases as indicators of airborne elements and of the spatial distribution of the total element deposition from a smelter in the area.

In rare cases, some soils are developed on the bedrock of the geogenically high magnetism, which may cause false-positive results. This influence can be though easily indicated by measurements of magnetic susceptibility along soil profiles. If the local bedrock exhibits extremely high magnetic signals, this method shall not be applied. Such cases are though exceptional.

This standard describes a method to compare the quality of soils by determining the fatty acid composition of the leaves of plant species grown on these soils.

Because plant fatty acid composition can vary as functions of climatic conditions, the areas to compare must share the same climatic conditions (humidity, temperature, sunlight).

This method does not make it possible to determine an optimal value of the Omega-3 index, and therefore cannot be used to determine the intrinsic quality of a soil from a specific area (regard as homogeneous). The method can be only used to compare the quality of soils between various areas.

This method is applicable to:

— soils from contaminated sites;

— amended soils;

— soils after remediation;

— soil with waste products (e.g. slurry, manure, sludge or composts).

The Omega-3 index being an early indicator, its measurement is not relevant when a strong visual phenotype (highly reduced biomass, high leaf chlorosis…) is detected for plants having grown on one area, and not detected on another area.

Alternatively, the quality of soils can be assessed by determining Omega-3 index of Lactuca sativa seedlings grown on these soils under controlled conditions (i.e. phytotronic chamber) and by comparing it to that obtained on control soils (see Annex A).

This International Standard specifies a reference method using transmission electron microscopy for the determination of airborne asbestos fibres and structures in in a wide range of ambient air situations, including the interior atmospheres of buildings, and for a detailed evaluation for asbestos structures in any atmosphere. The specimen preparation procedure incorporates ashing and dispersion of the collected particulate, so that all asbestos is measured, including the asbestos originally incorporated in particle aggregates or particles of composite materials. The lengths, widths and aspect ratios of the asbestos fibres and bundles are measured, and these, together with the density of the type of asbestos, also allow the total mass concentration of airborne asbestos to be calculated. The method allows determination of the type(s) of asbestos fibres present. The method cannot discriminate between individual fibres of the asbestos and non-asbestos analogues of the same amphibole mineral.
