Three types of field analytical methods designed for the detection of explo-
sive compounds--colorimetric, immunoassay, and gas chromatography--are
covered in this report. The relative merits and disadvantages of these methods are
discussed along with guidelines to enhance effective testing, ensure occupational
health and safety, provide accurate and reliable results, and reduce total
analytical costs of future sampling campaigns. These field analytical methods are
described in detail in Appendixes H through J.
