High Resolution Site Characterization
What is High Resolution Site Characterization (HRSC)?
Depending on the site, a combination of profiling tools can be used on the Membrane Interface Probe (MIP) to provide the applicable subsurface information. MIP technology is a good technology, but it cannot provide concentrations of individual VOC compounds in real-time. It’s only capable of detecting Volatile Organic Constituents (VOCs) in the soil down to concentrations of roughly 200-500 ppb, depending on the compound and the detector used for the analysis. The results obtained from the MIP system are only semi-quantitative as each chemical has a different transfer rate across the MIP membrane and each compound reacts differently in different sub-surface mediums.
Comprehensive Membrane Interface Probe Technology (C-MIP) is a newer technology which makes it possible to provide Quantitative data on individual Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) down to (1) part per billion (ppb) sensitivity. It is a comprehensive HRSC Technology that could push your project from Investigation Phase into Remediation Design Phase in no time and with a great deal of confidence, because the results have been shown to be within 94% to 100% of that of fix-based labs. In-Situ Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis has arrived!
