To better inform interested parties about uses of
sensors for port applications the following activies need to be implemented:
1 information collection
Compile case studies that highlight the
application of monitoring sensors; from these case studies, extract information

of the program.
2 Guidance for Port Application of Sensors
· Identify existing
guidance on using these monitoring devices.
information compiled from Phase 1.
· Draft guidance
specific for port applications that describes this technology, including the
pollutants for which sensors have been developed, where to install sensors in a
port, limitations to interpreting results from these devices, how to quality
check and analyze results.
recommendations for educational approaches to disseminate the data to the
public, port officials, and policy makers.
· Provide the guidance
to external reviewers for comment.
· Develop a final
version of the guidance based on recommendations provided by the document
reviewers and post report on TRB website.
