There are many things to consider when setting up a single sampling device or an entire monitoring network. Am I looking for the right compounds? Am I using the right equipment to provide the needed data? How can I ensure that the data collected are properly validated? Are there new technologies that could be employed? Essentially, I want to make sure our clients get the data that speak most effectively to their concerns.
