- Sandia National Laboratories has sponsored an LDRD (Laboratory Directed Research and Development) project to investigate and develop micro-chemical sensors for in-situ monitoring of subsurface contaminants. As part of this project, a literature search has been conducted to survey available technologies and identify the most promising methods for sensing and monitoring subsurface contaminants of interest. Specific sensor technologies are categorized into several broad groups, and these groups are then evaluated for use in subsurface, long-term applications. This report introduces the background and specific scope of the problem being addressed by this LDRD project, and it provides a summary of the advantages and disadvantages of each sensor technology identified from the literature search.
