Passive Sampling Workshop and Symposium
Hosted by Columbia Environmental Research Center, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Dept. of the Interior, and the VA Dept. of Environmental Quality

Scientific Program
The main program will comprise a mix of platform and poster presentations and topical discussions. The scientific focus of the meeting will be on in situ passive samples for environmental monitoring and risk assessment. Other subjects may include the use of passive samplers to carry out surveillance, operation, and investigative monitoring that are necessary to meet the needs of regulatory agencies. With the continued maturation of passive sampling tools, this upcoming meeting will also offer more 'hands-on' discussions to tackle specific practical applications of these tools.

This meeting will be beneficial to scientist (experts to first-time users), policy makers (regulatory authorities, accreditation bodies) and end users (companies, laboratories, and municipalities) that have a need for monitoring environmental pollution.

Tentative Topics for Presentations and Discussion (subject to change due to proposed topics)
  • New Advances in Passive Sampling Technologies
  • Practical Issues of Laboratory Processing
  • Combination of Bioindicator Tests with Passive Samplers
  • Design of Successful Field Deployments
  • Emerging Contaminants
  • Regulatory Issues (TMDLs, etc.)
