Abstract
A commercially available fieldable FTIR spectrometer configured with a 10 meter gas cell system was used in series with a hand-held photoionization detector to conduct a soil vapor survey. A primary purpose of the soil vapor survey was to evaluate the potential of this system as an extractive soil gas field screening technique. The soil gas survey was effected in conjunction with an on-site soil analysis study performed by a mobile laboratory. Soil gas and direct soil analyses data collected at depths of 3 - 7 feet from a selection of twenty bore holes were used to determine the extent of soil contamination at a manufacturing facility.
