Environmental measurements are significantly enhanced by a complement of field-worthy spectroscopic instrumentation. These improvements can result in rapid turn around time, more representative sampling of larger areas, and lower overall costs. The qualities that make instrumentation field-worthy include real-time analysis, ruggedness, size/portability, analyte selectivity or specificity, detectability and, of course, sufficient accuracy and precision. The Characterization, Monitoring & Sensor Technology Crosscutting Program (CMST-CP) within the U.S. Department of Energy Environmental Management (DOE-EM) supports a wide range of spectroscopic applications directly related to accelerating their cleanup efforts. Examples include tunable near infrared diode laser, laser-induced breakdown, imaging, beta, and mass spectroscopic technologies. Awareness of new technologies is crucial. An overview of these technologies will be presented.
