Abstract

Held fifteen years after the first Conference on Diffusive Sampling and ten years after the Clean Air at Work Symposium, this conference was organised by the Institute for Environment and Sustainability of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre in order to present the state of the art and the developments in the field. From the various presentations it has become clear that diffusive sampling has become a popular measurement methodology in application areas where emphasis is on ease of use, unobtrusiveness, low cost, measurement of time-integrated concentration levels and high spatial measurement density. Although the shift from development to application suggests that diffusive sampling has matured as a measurement technique, the 2001 conference still revealed a lack in harmonisation of some aspects. Particularly aspects of QA/QC, validation and assessment of measurement uncertainty deserve further attention.
