Abstract : A thermal desorption volatile organic compound sampler developed for the site characterization penetrometer system program was successfully field tested at Dover Air Force Base, Dover, DE. The device was evaluated as an in situ soil sampler in the vadose, capillary, and saturated zones and as a soil vapor sampler in the vadose zone. Comparisons to validation samples are made.
