Paper Abstract

In order to clearly separate the various systems that are to be discussed in this paper it is necessary to settle some definitions at the outset. We are going to very briefly discuss two different types of remote detection and compare them with the technique known as point sampling. Point samplers require the presence of some part of the instrument at the location where measurement is to occur. Relatively narrow area of coverage is obtained although the instruments are sensitive and can be quite small since sample dilution is minimal. All of the techniques mentioned are usable in point samplers although, in some cases, they are unnecessarily expensive and complex for such straightforward use. Quan-titative detection in terms of point sampling, while valid for a relatively small area or location, can be questioned in terms of how well the point sample characterizes an area in the surrounding vicinity.
