ABSTRACT

Exploration geochemical methods developed and used by the petroleum industry can be invaluable for environmental site characterizations. Many of these methods are not used because they are unfamiliar to environmental scientists and to most regulatory agencies. The rule-of-thumb methods of site characterization (randomly placed monitoring wells, EPA method analyses for target compounds, and the like) are rarely adequate to fully delineate and explain the nature and distribution of subsurface contamination.
