English term or phrase: spot readling
El texto es un manual de seguridad para buques petroleros. Contexto:

"Ship operators should be aware that gas measuring equipment on board tankers will only provide **spot readings** and that personnel may experience concentrations of vapour in excess of the reading obtained"

Parece que se trata de mediciones que reflejan la concentración de gas en puntos específicos. ¿Alguien sabe si existe en castellano un equivalente? Muchas gracias
