Via LSU scientist Linda Hooper-Bui:

That is an awfully big number! Naman's report is easy for the lay person to read. The problem with Naman's report to a scientist, is it lacks control data and an "internal standard spike" which tells you truly how much of the TPH was actually recovered. That number could be low by up to 35% or high by that amount. It is still a huge number regardless. Also, does Naman separate out the aromatics and alkanes? I'd sure love to see those data. NOAA and FDA are going to argue with his methodology and possibly his instrumentation.
