Abstract
A statistical test is presented to decide whether the average concentration of a contaminant exceeds a certain threshold. The test is based upon a number of samples of the contaminant, assumed to be lognormally distributed. The implementation of this test has been reduced to a very simple graphic procedure suitable for practical field use. The estimation of the average level of contaminant is also discussed. Illustrative calculations are presented using carbon monoxide as an example. (Contract No. HSM 99-73-Z8)
