This report presents the overhead imagery and field sampling results used to prepare U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 2011–1050, “Evaluation of Traditional and Emerging Remote Sensing Technologies for the Detection of Fugitive Contamination at Selected Superfund Hazardous Waste Sites”. These graphic products were used in the evaluation of remote sensing technology in postclosure monitoring of hazardous waste sites and represent an ongoing research effort.

Soil sampling results presented here were accomplished with field portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) technology and are used as screening tools only representing the current conditions of metals and other contaminants at selected Superfund hazardous waste sites.
