The article discusses the environmental monitoring approaches that are used for effective assessment and restorations of sites. It cites several field analytical methods that were previously developed to hasten the site remediation and characterization efforts including ion-trap mass spectrometry, field-test kits, and soil-gas analyses. Several applications of field analysis approaches are discussed such as groundwater monitoring and geotechnical and agriculture optimization.
