Soil gas measurements were taken in a beach sand matrix of the unsaturated zone above a ground water plume contaminated from a spill near 35,000 gallons of aviation gasoline. The soil gas sampling and analysis strategy provided required information for mapping the plume and vertical profile measurements with a minimal expenditure of resources and work time. Analysis of a calibration gas and replicate sampling showed that the apparatus used gave reasonably correct soil gas contituent measurements. Boundaries of the plume were defined and a hot spot was located downgradient from the original spill location. Elevated carbon dioxide above the contaminated capillary fringe indicated microbial respiration activity. A biodegradation model developed from the vertical profile data predicted very low oxygen at the water table and little or no loss of hydrocarbon emissions to the atmosphere.
