Measurement of environmental pollutants using passive sampling devices – an updated commentary on the current state of the art
The following provides a short overview of the important topics arising from the 6th International Passive Sampling Workshop and Symposium (IPSW 2013) held in Bordeaux, France between 26 and 29th June, 2013. Most of the discussions focussed on monitoring non-polar and polar organic pollutants in water with less coverage on air (probably already seen as a mature technology for this medium) and sediments. The use of passive sampling devices within regulatory water monitoring programmes was also a major theme of the Workshop.
