Abstract
Biological events can be divided into three distinct environmental sampling phases: initial assessment, characterization, and clearance. This chapter examines the different sampling goals and strategies associated with each phase to provide an overall perspective and framework for understanding the role of environmental sampling in a biological event. Specific sampling methods are mentioned; however, this chapter is not intended to provide a comprehensive review of either sampling or analysis methods. Such detail can be found in chapters 5, 6, and 9. A fictional airport scenario is provided in order to better convey the sampling issues and to place them in a realistic context.
