"GasClam®: Continuous ground-gas monitoring becomes a reality".
Pollution Engineering, a leading US waste and land remediation magazine, recently published the
white paper “GasClam®: Continuous Ground-Gas Monitoring Becomes a Reality”.
The paper seeks to highlight the challenges and then suggest a solution to the issues faced by the
contaminated land and landfill industry when trying to accurately quantify the true gas regime of
their sites and then predict future changes and trends.
The paper also explores the need by industry regulators to obtain more representative data, and
highlights the flaws in the traditional “spot” method of collecting data (ie. discrete periodic static
measurements of gas concentrations from which the gas regime is inferred) – a method that
places considerable economic and labour constraints upon operators and regulators to effectively
and accurately assess and quantify risk.
The article promotes GasClam®, Salamander Group’s continuous gas monitoring technology, as
the only device with the capability to effectively collect high temporal resolution data via remote
“With the ability to collect time series data, an improved measurement of flux can be made and
temporal variability can be quantified and accounted for. This will improve understanding of
processes, thereby reducing the uncertainty which is inherent in the inferences required in using
measuring that are indirect and lacking in temporal resolution.
“GasClam® will allow the collection of continuous data to become widely used.”
