The testing procedures discussed include (1) the determination of test sites, (2) scheduling of testing, (3) the number of tests to obtain per site, and (4) the use of control site including the frequency of testing. The discussion of data input procedures includes a description of the data elements collected during a skid test, the appropriate input forms to use, and coding techniques as outlined in Appendices A and B.
