Using Field Data and Numerical Modeling to Assess Vapor Intrusion Risk
Research Brief - May 2016

The findings provide insight into how an approach incorporating multiple lines of evidence, including soil gas measurements and a 3-D model, can be used to better evaluate exposure risks from vapor intrusion into homes and buildings.
