Abstract:

The multiport sampler, developed within the Tri-Services Site Characterization and Analysis Penetrometer System SCAPS program, is a cone penetrometer configured with sampling modules. The modules are fined into the string of penetrometer rods to provide independently controlled sampling ports. Soil gas andor soil liquids can be drawn into the interior of the penetrometer rod at discrete depth intervals as the cone penetrometer is advanced. A thermal desorption module is designed to heat the soil and volatilize contaminants. The samples are then collected through the ports and analyzed for suspected contaminants. MM
