The GCMS Samples Template

GCMS Side Image 4Appendix 2 of the GCMS: GCMS Preferred Sample Data lists recommended data and information points that should be documented for USGS samples, and form the basis for the GCMS samples template.  This template can be used for data input and sample registration. It provides fields for indexing required attributes, and will provide drop-down options for some of the descriptive elements as the template is developed.

New versions of this template may be made available as the GCMS is implemented and vetted.  Please check back for improved versions.
