Risk Based Approach to Environmental Monitoring (webinar)

Regulators frequently cite concerns with environmental monitoring and the lack of a well-thought out rationale. This shortfall can be overcome through the application of risk assessment and scientific approaches. The application of risk assessment applies to selecting location for monitoring and frequencies of monitoring; and for data assessment. This presentation outlines the primary tools that can be used to achieve this.
