Abstract:

At the request of the Naval Facilities Engineering Command NAVFAC, Southern Division, Charleston, SC, the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES conducted the initial field trial of the Site Characterization and Analysis Penetrometer System SCAPS at Jacksonville Naval Air Station NAS, Jacksonville FL. This work was carried out by a field crew consisting of personnel from WES and the Naval Ocean Systems Center during the period of 16 July 1990 to 14 August 1990. The SCAPS investigation at the Jacksonville NAS has two primary objectives a to provide data that could be useful in formulating remediation plans for the facility and b to provide for the initial field trial of the SCAPS currently under development by WES for the U.S. Army Toxic and Hazardous Materials Agency USATHAMA, now the U.S. Army Environmental Center. The original concepts for the SCAPS was to develop an integrated site screening characterization system whose capabilities would include a surface mapping, b geophysical surveys using magnetic, induced electromagnetic, and radar instruments, c measurements of soil strength, soil electrical resistivity, and laser-induced soil fluorometry Cone penetrometer, Site Characterization and Analysis Laser Induced FluorescenceLIF, Penetrometer SystemSCAPS POL Contamination, using screening instrumentation mounted in a soil penetrometer, d soil and fluid samplers, and e computerized data acquisition, interpretation, and visualization. The goal of the SCAPS program is to provide detailed, rapid, and cost-effective surface and subsurface data for input to site assessmentremediation efforts.
