Abstract : The purpose of the research was to determine the feasibility of developing electronic sensors for measuring various properties of cold-region soils. Research was performed to produce prototype sensors with fill solutions that would allow for operation in the temperature ranges of interest. It would appear that further research will result in the ability to evaluate the effectiveness of bioremediation methods. The need for performing in-situ bioremediation is becoming increasingly apparent in the on-going battle to clean up contaminated soils from a man-power and litigation perspective. Developing the tools for analyzing the success of bioremediation will have a global commercial impact.
