The American Society for Testing and Materials is setting up a group to develop a standard performance guide on monitoring soil gas in the vadose zone. The guide will be for existing methods of soil gas collection, sample handling, sample analysis, QA-QC, data reporting, and compositional data analysis.
The group will meet January 22–26, 1989, in Orlando, Fla. Scientists interested in participating can contact Bob Morgan, ASTM, 1916 Race St., Philadelphia, PA 19103; tel. 215-299-5505. The work is under D18.21.02 on Unsaturated Zone Monitoring, a subcommittee of ASTM standards-writing Committee D-18 on Soil and Rock.
