Abstract:

This guide provides a standardized protocol for the use of on-site gas chromatographymass spectrometry GCMS analysis to evaluate the potential for vapor intrusion in a building, including the ability to distinguish between vapor intrusion and indoor or other sources of volatile organic chemicals VOCs. This vapor intrusion investigation approach provides an alternative to the conventional investigation method of indoor air and sub-slab testing using Summa canisters and off-site laboratory analysis. The protocol was developed and validated as part of Environmental Security Technology Certification Program ESTCP Project No. ER-201119 GSI, 2013.
