FOREGS Geochemical Baseline Programme (FGBP) This programme has been initiated to provide high quality environmental geochemical baseline data for Europe. The data will be based on samples of stream water, stream sediment, floodplain sediment, soil, and humus collected from all over Europe. High quality and consistency of the obtained data are ensured by using standardised sampling methods and by treating and analysing all samples in the same laboratories. The FGBP is authorised by the directors of the Geological Surveys within FOREGS (Forum of European Geological Surveys). The FGBP also represents the European contribution to the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS)/ International Association of Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry (IAGC) Working Group on Global Geochemical Baselines. The present report contains comprehensive instructions for sample site selection and sample collection. In addition, a summary of methods intended for sample preparation and analysis is included. Detailed descriptions of analytical methods used in FGBP will appear in a separate report.
