Analysis of Soils Contaminated with Petroleum Constituents

Editor(s): Tracey A. O'Shay, Keith B. Hoddinott

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.
