This chapter has briefly discussed, among others topics, the influence of thermal drift on the probe parameters, the role of its dynamic characteristics, deformation of the measured field by a person performing the measurements and by the meter, resonant phenomena, and others. At the end of the chapter, an example based on the uncertainty budget estimation of EMF measurement will be presented.
