Abstract : The multiport sampler, developed within the Tri-Services Site Characterization and Analysis Penetrometer System (SCAPS) program, is a cone penetrometer configured with sampling modules. The modules are fined into the string of penetrometer rods to provide independently controlled sampling ports. Soil gas and/or soil liquids can be drawn into the interior of the penetrometer rod at discrete depth intervals as the cone penetrometer is advanced. A thermal desorption module is designed to heat the soil and volatilize contaminants. The samples are then collected through the ports and analyzed for suspected contaminants. (MM)
