Abstract : Thirteen sites at Fort Dix, New Jersey, were investigated with the WES Site Characterization and Analysis Penetrometer System (SCAPS). The SCAPS performed detection screening for possible subsurface petroleum, oil, and lubricant (POL) contamination at each site. The truck-mounted laser-induced fluorometer packaged with the conventional cone penetrometer was utilized for this mission. Soil and groundwater verification sampling was also conducted. Possible POL contamination was found at 6 of the 13 sites investigated. Cone penetrometer, Laser induced fluorometer, POL contamination.
