Field Screening Methods for Hazardous Wastes and Toxic Chemicals. Second International Symposium, February 12-14, 1991.
Over 120 platform and poster presentations were shown at the Second International Symposium on Field Screening Methods for Hazardous Wastes and Toxic Chemicals, Las Vegas, Nevada, February 12 through 14, 1991. The purpose of the meeting was to illustrate a global view of technological developments in the area of field screening methods for identifying and quantifying contaminants in the environment. Three days of meetings were held to provide information to the regulatory, academic, industrial, and user communities. General topics discussed included: chemical sensors, ion mobility spectrometry, robotics, quality assurance and study design, air pathway monitoring at superfund sites, field mobile gas chromatography/mass spectrometry techniques, portable gas chromatography, field screening methods for worker safety, X-ray fluorescence, and Fourier transform infrared spectrometry and other spectroscopy methods.
