Abstract : The site characterization and analysis penetrometer system (SCAPS) with laser induced fluorescence (LIF) sensors are being demonstrated as a quick field screening techniques to determine the physical and chemical characteristics of subsurface soil and contaminants at hazardous waste sites. SCAPS is a collaborative development effort of the Navy, Army, and Air Force under the Tri-Service SCAPS Program. The current SCAPS configuration is designed to quickly and cost effectively distinguish areas contaminated with petroleum products (hydrocarbons) from unaffected areas. p1+2
