This report includes papers presented at a workshop entitled "Field Screening for Environmental Pollutants: Defining User Instrumentation Needs". Topics covered include applications of field screening to solute transport, measurements in the vadose zone, underground storage tank assessments, metal detection, semi-volatiles, EPA needs, hazardous wastes, problems in collecting field data, portable mass spectrometry, on-site detection of organic contaminants by thermal desorpion chromatography/mass spectroscopy, laser spectroscopy fiber-optic monitoring of fuel contamination, fiber-optic based sensing, biotechnology-based methods, and legal implications. The workshop also included a panel discussion on obstacles hindering use of new technologies for site characterization and remediation.
