Depth Interval

The Depth Interval Naming Schema allows the incorporation of a sample's depth into a sample's code. To learn how to create samples at different depths, read SPM - Setting Sample Depth for Planned Samples.

 

Sample depth can be represented in the following ways:

 

START_DEPTH: actual numerical value of start depth

END_DEPTH: actual numerical value of end depth

depthAsDigit: sequence number of a sample in the sampling interval, represented by a number, starting at 1

depthAsLetter: sequence number of a sample in the sampling interval, represented by a letter, starting at A

 

The example below demonstrates values for depth interval for each available setting. There are three samples for location MW1, taken every two feet, starting at zero.
