    Get the latest research on detection limits as applied to various fields of environmental measurements.

    With a focus on advancing the science of detection capability and understanding its concepts, this publication is a key resource for practitioners and policymakers. The 15 peer-reviewed papers are grouped into four subject areas:

    – overview and standards development activities
    – policy issues and mathematical basis
    – applications and recent developments
    – censored data

    This publication is dedicated to Dr. Harry L. Rook, a longtime ASTM member and past chair of ASTM International Committee D22 on Air Quality.
