Subject: [CPEO-BIF] New book on Continuous Soil Gas Measurements
From Everett & Associates
January 15, 2014

A New Book on Soil Gas & Vapor Intrusion from Dr. Lorne Everett - Continuous Soil Gas Measurements: Worst Case Risk Parameters

Our CEO, Dr. Lorne Everett has published a new book from ASTM, Continuous Soil Gas Measurements: Worst Case Risk Parameters. This compilation, coedited with Dr. Mark Kram of Groundswell Technologies, contains peer-reviewed papers presented at the 2013 ASTM symposium in Jacksonville, FL. The symposium, chaired by Dr. Everett, addressed methods for identifying and managing vapor intrusion risks. This topic is significant because dry cleaners, gasoline stations, refineries, fracking sites, landfills, machine shops, electronics manufacturers, airports, and many other facilities that use (and may spill) chemicals are at risk for vapor intrusion.

Articles in the book summarize state-of-the art thinking on vapor intrusion by an international team of authors from the USA, Canada, Brazil, United Kingdom, Germany and other nations. This extensive interest is driven by widespread observations that prevailing sampling programs may fail to fully characterize vapor intrusion problems due to extreme spatial and temporal variability of VOCs and methane at contaminated sites. A developing theme among environmental scientists and engineers is that vapor intrusion risks are dynamic and, therefore, vapor intrusion investigations should be, too. Ideally, investigations should involve continuous monitoring, instead of relying on just one or two discrete monitoring events.
