VALIDATION OF PASSIVE SAMPLING DEVICES FOR MONITORING OF MUNITIONS CONSTITUENTS IN UNDERWATER ENVIRONMENTS: TECHNOLOGY USER'S MANUAL
Rosen, G., R. George, and W. Wild.
ESTCP Project ER-201433, Version 1.2, 26 pp, 2017

The polar organic chemical integrative sampler (POCIS) is designed to sample the more water-soluble organic chemicals with log octanol-water partition coefficients, which includes munitions constituents such as TNT, RDX, and their major transformation products. Munitions monitoring has been tested and verified using the standard commercially available POCIS. This manual describes the effective implementation of POCIS samplers for longer-term (i.e., 8 days or more) sampling efforts. https://www.serdp-estcp.org/content/download/46679/436387/file/ER-201433%20User%20Guide.pdf The ESTCP final technical report for project ER-201433 (Rosen et al. 2017) was the source of much of the input to this user's guide and should be consulted as necessary. https://www.serdp-estcp.org/Program-Areas/Environmental-Restoration/Contaminated-Sediments/ER-201433
