12. A Toolbox of Techniques to Generate Data for Ecological Risk Assessments - Characteristics, Costs, and Case Studies.
Saturday, 16 November 2002
8:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Room 151 A
This short course, which is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of available techniques, is composed of three segments: (1) field sampling and assessment of bioaccumulation; (2) laboratory and field-testing methods; and (3) field surveys for ecological characterization and biomonitoring. Within each section, why a particular tool is chosen, what information it provides, what its cost is, how the information can be used, and whether the information can be used to answer more than one question in the site investigation will be discussed. The background, development, and current state of the art for each technique will be presented with at least one-third of each session devoted to problem solving and case examples to illustrate a tool’s utility, along with its regulatory acceptance. Instructors will include representatives from both the industrial and regulatory sectors to provide a balance in perspective. This course is designed for advanced scientists who are, or will be involved in developing field sampling plans for ecological risk assessments.
