Detailed investigation of soil and sediment pollution is a crucial aspect of remediation. Direct-push methods (direct sensing tools) represent a powerful tool for characterization of the contaminated site. One of these methods is Membrane Interface Probe suitable for detection of volatile organic compounds in soils.
