A series of chapters on techniques describes methods used by the U.S. Geological Survey for planning and conducting water-resources investigations.

The material is arranged under major subject headings called books and is further subdivided into sections and chapters. Book 5 is on laboratory analyses; section A is on water.

Section A of Book 5 presents techniques used in water analysis. Provisional drafts of chapters are distributed to field offices of the U.S. Geological Survey for their use. These drafts are subject to revision because of experience in use or because of advancement in knowledge, techniques, or by: 5.
