AN IN-SITU PROBE FOR METALS CONTAMINATED HARBOR SEDIMENTS
The project objective is to adapt extant cone penetrometer X-ray fluorescence (CPT-XRF) technology to submerged sediments. Its applicability as an in-situ screening tool will be demonstrated to rapidly and accurately delineate the extent of metals contamination in Great Lakes harbors. A modified version of a submersible delivery system developed under previous GLNPO funding will be used to insert the probe into sediments. The merger of these two technologies provides an opportunity to develop in-situ capability for metals analysis in harbor sediments. The main thrust of this project is to adapt the current technology for use as an in-situ technique capable of providing a reliable screening level tool.
