Paper Abstract

To demonstrate the versatility of Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometry, two site investigations are discussed. The first is the monitoring of emissions from active volcanoes. The second is the analysis of soil gases from a site that is currently under remediation for ground water and soil contamination. The monitoring performed at the volcanoes used open- path FT-IR methods and the monitoring at the remediation site used extractive FT-IR methods. Descriptions of the sampling systems employed and the emissions monitored at these sites are used to demonstrate the advantages and limitations of environmental monitoring using FT-IR spectrometry.
