Real Time methods give the results right in the field as the monitoring is performed. There are two main categories of these devices: direct reading electronic instruments that measure concentration using sensor and microprocessor technology; and colorimetric devices that indicate concentration or exposure level by a color change in the sampling medium. This chapter presents an overview of Real Time methods; subsequent chapters cover these topics in more detail.
