Fiber optic/cone penetrometer system For subsurface heavy metals detection

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Contamination of the soil by heavy metals (Pb, Cr, Cu, Zn, Cd) is of great concern for government and industry; characterization, monitoring, and remediation is expensive and time consuming. Objective of this project is to develop an integrated fiber optic sensor/cone penetrometer system to analyze the heavy metals content of the subsurface. Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy is used in the system. Work is being done on developing a truck mounted system.
