30 Seconds of Info. Remember some sampling errors cannot be eliminated but they can be minimised.

Remember that some sampling errors cannot be eliminated, but they can be minimised: In addition to the Fundamental Sampling Error, which is the subject of Gy’s theory and its derivations, the Grouping and Segregation Error (GSE) is a function of the size, nature and constitution of the particles, among other factors.  The GSE certainly can be reduced through judicious practice, but there are circumstances where the GSE can swamp other errors – you need to be aware of these.

This week’s 30 Seconds of Info is from Ian Glacken – Optiro’s Director of Geology   iglacken@snowdenoptiro.com
