7th Passive Sampling Workshop and Symposium (Day 2)
Internet-based seminar
Hosted by Columbia Environmental Research Center, U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior, and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality

The scientific focus of this webcast 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 webcast will also offer more 'hands-on' discussions to tackle specific practical applications of these tools. This webcast will be beneficial to scientists (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. Presentations on Day 2 (April 25) will include:
  • Comparison SPMDs and selected abiotic samplers using Gnostic data analysis
  • Semipermeable Membrane Devices Link Site-Specific Contaminants To Effects: Part 1 - Induction Of CYP1A In Rainbow Trout From Contaminants In Prince William Sound, Alaska
  • Semipermeable Membrane Devices Link Site-Specific Contaminants To Effects: Part II - A Comparison Of Lingering Exxon Valdez Oil With Other Potential Sources Of Cytochrome P450 1A Inducers In Prince William Sound, Alaska
  • Determination Of Uptake Rates For VOCs In Ambient Air By Using Axial Type Thermal Desorption Passive Tubes
  • Spatial Distributions Of Organic And Inorganic Polutants At An Industrial City On The Northwestern Turkey
