USGS - science for a changing world
Quality Systems Branch       

  • The US Geological Survey's Quality Systems Branch (QSB) operates six blind sample quality assurance projects to benefit the Water Science Centers, the laboratories used by USGS, and to assure USGS analytical data quality.

    USGS data users will find helpful charts and tables summarizing laboratory performance over time for different laboratory types and for USGS field technicians and volunteers collecting water samples.
