This report covers the topics of (1) principles of pollutant movement in the vadose zone (zone of aeration or unsaturated zone), (2) basic chemical reactions of fluids in the zone, (3) state-of-the-art monitoring techniques, and (4) the relative advantages and disadvantages of the different monitoring techniques. Recent intense concern over hazardous waste disposal has indicated the need for instruction on how to monitor in the vadose zone and to identify the potential gains from the limitations of the methods available for monitoring in this zone. This report provides technical information needed by regulating agencies and industrial concerns in dealing with waste disposal problems.
