The report documents 22 presentations comprising 12 poster sessions at the symposium. The symposium focused on the state-of-the-art of sampling and analysis techniques that are appropriate for process measurements in the context of an environmental assessment program. Methods are included for qualitative and quantitative chemical characterization of organic and inorganic species in process and discharge streams and biological assays of environmental samples. The symposium was part of EPA's continuing effort to share recently developed methodology and encourage the interchange of ideas between researchers in government, industry, and academia. Topics included: use of sorbents for sampling, sampling of reactive species, sampling and analysis methodology for coal conversion processes, advanced inorganic analysis techniques, advanced organic analysis techniques, and application of bioassay methods to complex samples.
