Passive sampling devices for environmental monitoring: Tips for a successful study



The use of passive sampling devices for environmental monitoring has gained considerable acceptance over
the last decade. However, there is often a lack of understanding about the proper use and interpretation of
the data obtained from these samplers which can result in a failure to accomplish project goals. The success
of any environmental monitoring study begins in the office or laboratory with the general steps of the
formulation of a sampling plan, training of personnel, performing the field work, processing of the collected
samples, analysis, and interpretation of the data. This talk will provide an overview of passive sampling
techniques for measuring contaminants; discuss potential linkages between chemical occurrence and
biological effects, challenges and tips for using passive samplers in the field; analytical considerations; data
considerations; and examples of how passive sampling has been used in support of large monitoring efforts
and in regulatory applications.
