    Presents the latest research on analytical procedures for soil contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons, and the behavior of hydrocarbons, and the behavior of hydrocarbon contaminated soils.

    9 peer-reviewed papers cover:

    • Differences and difficulties in recovering oil from a soil sample

    • Attributes of the fuel isolation, identification, and quantitation method

    • Applicability of Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) to the preparation of oil contaminated soil samples

    • A tiered analytical protocol for characterizing heavy oil residues in soil

    • Three methods for measuring petroleum hydrocarbons in soil

    • Petroleum hydrocarbon analytical techniques and their limitations

    • Effects of crude oil contamination on compaction, stress deformation, compressibility, shear strength, and permeability characteristics of sand.

    • Experimental and modeling approaches to understand the behaviors of oil in soils.
