Vapor Intrusion

Vapor Intrusion refers to the migration of vapors from subsurface contaminant sources to buildings such as a homes or workplaces. API conducts research towards improving the screening process for vapor intrusion at sites where petroleum releases have occurred.

BioVapor Indoor Vapor Intrusion Model

BioVapor is a user-friendly spreadsheet implementation of an indoor vapor intrusion model with oxygen-limited biodegradation. The BioVapor model is a steady-state 1-D analytical model intended to provide the user with an improved understanding of the potential effect of vadose zone aerobic biodegradation on the vapor intrusion pathway.
