EPA Method 3815:

A sample of soil or other solid material is carefully collected with minimal disturbance that could cause loss of volatile constituents. Sample collection may be accomplished using a modified plastic syringe or commercially-available coring devices intended for this purpose.

This method is a screening procedure for estimating the total concentration of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in soil and solid samples. It is strictly a screening procedure and is designed primarily for field use. In order for this screening procedure to be effective, the VOCs of interest at the site must be known in advance and must be detectable by the photoionization detector (PID) used in this procedure.
