ABSTRACT

With all good intentions and even with the best pre-project planning, sometimes even the smallest misassumption, in the field during sample collection or at any point during the laboratory process, can have a substantial impact on project data.

A collection of real-life field and laboratory blunders will be presented, which are designed to entertain, but also to provide some important lessons learned.
