Incorporating CSIA in Vapor Intrusion Investigations
Land Science is pleased to present a webinar with Dora Taggart, President of Microbial Insights, Inc., and Sam Rosolina, PhD, Analytical Chemist and Manager of the Compound Specific Isotope Analysis (CSIA) Laboratory at Microbial Insights. In this webinar, Dora and Sam will discuss incorporating CSIA in vapor intrusion investigations. They will be joined by Tom Szocinski, CEP, Director of Vapor Intrusion at Land Science, who will discuss innovative new vapor barrier technologies that are more protective and more cost-effective.
Date: Thursday, September 19th, 2019
Time: 11am pacific / 2pm eastern
Learn the following in this free webinar:
- A primer for sites impacted with contaminant vapor intrusion
- How CSIA is being used to fingerprint different contaminant sources
- Using CSIA to help identify the underlying cause of decreased indoor air quality
Many of the contaminants commonly impacting indoor air through vapor intrusion can also be found in a number of house-hold items and products. Are the chlorinated solvents detected in the air originating from the groundwater beneath the building, or is a bottle of adhesive the actual source? Is the benzene detected in the basement a direct result of an upgradient petroleum release, or from the cigarette of the construction worker in the next room? Determining the source of impact is an important first step in investigating vapor intrusion cases and can save time and money in the long run. This webinar will serve as a primer for vapor intrusion, and will highlight how compound specific isotope analysis is being used to fingerprint different contaminant sources and help to identify the underlying cause of decreased indoor air quality. With the added context of Microbial Insights’ new CSIA database, the results are automatically plotted for you, making it easy to visualize and interpret the data.
