EMF Measurement Techniques
NIST's activities include providing EMF-related consultation and measurement support to other agencies and researchers, and the development of metrology related standards. For example, EMF measurements in exposure systems during site visits provide for quality control of the exposure parameters; standards aid in ensuring uniformity of measurement procedures and accuracy of measurements. This latter activity is important because a number of states have set maximum field limits in and at the edge of the right-of-way.
