The Field Sampling and Analysis Technologies Matrix and Reference Guide are intended to be an initial reference source that will help users to understand innovative and conventional site characterization technologies and techniques. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), through its Engineering Field Divisions and Activities, the Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center, Specialty Offices, and Public Works Centers, provides high quality scientific and environmental engineering services to assist in the management of environmental initiatives. This document is intended to enhance technology transfer and provide much needed comparison between competing technologies. The effort is intended to directly benefit Navy Installation Restoration (IR) and Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) programs; however, both the Matrix and Reference Guide can be utilized by program managers working anywhere within the public or private sector.
Government remedial project managers (RPMs) must often sort through large volumes of related and overlapping information to evaluate alternative technologies. To assist the RPM in this process and to enhance technology transfer among Federal agencies, this document was developed to combine the unique features of several agency publications into a single document. It allows the RPM to pursue questions based on contamination problems as well as specific technology issues. As conventional methods improve and new technologies emerge, periodic updates of this document will be issued to help the RPM keep pace with the ever-changing range of technology options available.
