TOTAL VOLATILE SOLIDS

Definition

The quantity is the weight loss upon ignition at 5500C of the residue from the total solids analysis. However, the majority of investigators (outside the USA) use ashing at 4500C. Total volatile solids are a measure of the dissolved and particulate organic matter.
