A large quantity of marine sediment was collected in 2002 from the Algerian coast of the Mediterranean Sea for use as an intercomparison material. It was deep-frozen, freeze dried, then ground and sieved. The particle size fraction <250 μm was homogenized and bottled in clean plastic bottles. After confirming general homogeneity via a pre-test (results not reported here), the samples were rebottled by packing aliquots of approximately 20 g into cleaned, brown borosilicate glass bottles with Teflon lined screw caps and sealed in plastic bags. Approximately 500 bottles were produced.
