The document is an attempt at compiling all pertinent information on the current state of the art of soil gas sensing as it relates to the detection of subsurface organic contaminants. It is hoped that such a document will better assist all those individuals who are faced with assessing the extent of the contamination soil groundwater systems. The document addresses five important areas related to soil gas monitoring: (1) site specific parameter considerations; (2) transport and retention of organics in soil and groundwater; (3) sampling methods; (4) analytical methods; (5) statistical treatment of soil organic vapor measurements.
