Description: Special Report
Abstract: This report describes an on-site method of estimating the total concentration of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in soil, relative to a site-specific 0.2-mg/kg standard. This decision tool allows on-site sampling activities to incorporate the appropriate soil sample collection and handling protocols required by different methods of instrumental analysis. Coupling a rapid method for estimating the total VOC concentration with sampling procedures that limit substrate disaggregation and exposure complements efforts to achieve site-representative estimates for vadose zone contamination.
