VI – Soil Gas Sampling
June 17, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$35
Soil gas is usually analyzed with the same methods used for indoor air, which in the U.S., generally means EPA Method TO-15. TO-15 specifies Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS) analysis of samples from evacuated stainless-steel “Summa” canisters. But because soil-gas concentrations at source areas are so high relative to indoor air, smaller, less costly containers might also suffice.
Laurie and Craig will use this class to explain what the Vapor pin is, how it is installed and the array of purposes it can serve in obtaining VI assessment while providing long-term monitoring. Ultimately, vapor intrusion cannot be fully monitored without being able to assess soil gas and this class will give you the tools to do it in a thorough and complete way.
