Abstract The objective of Incremental Sampling Methodology (ISM) is to obtain a single sample for analysis that has the mean analyte concentration representative of the decision unit. A Decision Unit (DU) is the smallest volume of soil (or other media) for which a decision will be made based upon ISM sampling. Reluctance to use ISM stems from a lack of experience. ISM primarily used at commercial/industrial sites but applicable to all types of sites.
