This document presents the Coastal Survey Vessel data from the January / February 1995 baseline survey coordinated by the NRA-s National Centre for Instrumentation and Marine Surveillance. Continuous monitoring data in the form of A1 plots is appended to this report in a separate package. An overview of the QUBIT system and a technical glossary are included herein. The laboratory information is presented in two forms, plotted as maps and as tabular data. The maps use a minimum reporting limit (set to one tenth of the EQS (Environmental Quality Standard) where there is one), whilst the tables report the values returned from the laboratory. Because of the poor weather conditions much of the southern area of the United Kingdom was not surveyed during the designated period of January and February. These areas were surveyed during March and April. The data from these two months are not comparable with January and February as they are effectively early Spring rather than Winter. To avoid misleading the reader two sets of maps have been produced, one for January / February and another for March / April. A single table of data is presented, covering the entire survey. This table contains the date of sampling, so the reader can interpret the results on a site by site basis.
