10 Methods & Data Comparability Board Sensors workgroup Members from monitoring community, research, and industry White paper Task divided into: – Collection of high-quality data – Management of effective monitoring program

11 Methods & Data Comparability Board Sensors workgroup QA/QC Technology Field Applications Data Management

12 Methods & Data Comparability Board Field Monitoring Quality Assurance Initiative Comprised of core working group and a review board Core group is 9 people from industry (6); government (2); and a consultant, along w/ Methods Board and Council ad-hoc members (3). Review board of 15: 11 from gov’t; 1 from industry; and 2 from academia
