Rapid surface sampling and archival record (RSSAR) system

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Purpose is to develop a rapid surface contamination measurement system that will provide a ``quick-look`` indication of contaminated areas, an archival record, and an automated analysis of that record. By providing rapid analysis and a large number of accurate measurements of surface and subsurface contamination, the cost of remediation of large industrial sites will be dramatically lowered by reducing both characterization time and the material fraction that must be remediated. The RSSAR system is capable of sampling a variety of surfaces for semivolatile organic contaminants. The sampling is rapid (one sample per 100 sec). The system comprises thermal sampler heads, ... continued below
