Greetings all!

I am in charge of data interpretation and dissemination from a groundwater sampling effort my Division is currently involved in. The main focus will be on Ra-226 (via EPA 903.1) results although other NORM isotopes will be analyzed as well.

I was wondering if anyone has a spreadsheet that I can use and/or modify to calculate the mean, standard deviation, etc. from approximately 30 samples so I don't have to reinvent the wheel.

I will likely break out the locations considered background and compare the average and individual results to the average from those wells. Of course, I will gladly entertain any advice in this endeavor as I rarely get asked to perform such a task.

Thanks in advance.
