The Quality Assurance (QA) Team at the Marine Pollution Studies Laboratory at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (MPSL-MLML) was created through the support of the San José State University Research Foundation. Before, during, and after data production, QA Team oversight yields legally- and scientifically-defensible results of known and documented quality.
While offering many conventional services, the QA Team seeks to eliminate the unnecessary bureaucracy associated with traditional quality management. The result is a streamlined QA system that is customized to meet each project’s unique goals. To date, the QA Team has designed and implemented quality systems for bioassessment, instream flow, physical habitat assessment, chemistry (including ultra-trace level, speciation, and contaminants of emerging concern), toxicity testing, statistical analysis, and field measurements. Specific tasks have included:
