This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release contains tree-core, soil-gas, and soil data collected at the Vienna Wells Superfund site in Vienna, Missouri by the U.S. Geological Survey between 2011 and 2016. Concentrations of tetrachloroethylene (PCE) are reported for each sample in each medium. Tree-core sampling was conducted over two days (July 29, 2014 and May 21, 2015). Trees sampled on July 29, 2014 were used to calculate concentration centroids for each tree to compare with concentration centroids in soil samples. Tree 29 was sampled on May 21, 2015 to characterize and model tetrachloroethylene concentrations within a single tree. An interpolated soil surface was created from 1,016 soil samples (see doi:...

Concentrations of tetrachloroethylene in tree-core samples from tree 29 at the Vienna Wells site, Vienna, Missouri. Contains information on the height and side of the tree from where the sample was collected. These data support the following publication: Wilson, J.L., Samaranayake, V.A., Limmer, M.A., Schumacher, J.G., Burken, J.G., 2017, Contaminant Gradients in Trees: Directional Tree Coring Reveals Boundaries of Soil and Soil-Gas Contamination with Potential Applications in Vapor Intrusion Assessment: Environmental Science and Technology, Just Accepted Manuscript. DOI: 10.1021/acs.est.7b03466.

This dataset contains the tree-core data collected at the Vienna Wells Superfund site in Vienna, Missouri by the U.S. Geological Survey. Concentrations of tetrachloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), and 1,1,2-Trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane (CFC-113) are provided in nanograms per liter. Concentrations are averages collected from 2011 to 2015. These data support the following publication: Wilson, J.L., Limmer, M.A., Samaranayake, V.A., Schumacher, J.G., Burken, J.G., 2017, Tree Sampling as a Method to Assess Vapor Intrusion Potential at a Site Characterized by VOC-Contaminated Groundwater and Soil: Environmental Science and Technology, v. 51, no. 18, p. 10369-10378. DOI: 10.1021/acs.est.7b02667.

Concentrations of tetrachloroethylene (PCE) in interpolated soil surface boundary points at the Vienna Wells Site: Maries County, Missouri. This boundary is composed of points with an assumed PCE concentration of 11 micrograms per kilogram (detection limit) and was used with the soil sample dataset (doi: 10.5066/F71835D8) to create an interpolated surface. These data support the following publication: Wilson, J.L., Samaranayake, V.A., Limmer, M.A., Schumacher, J.G., Burken, J.G., 2017, Contaminant Gradients in Trees: Directional Tree Coring Reveals Boundaries of Soil and Soil-Gas Contamination with Potential Applications in Vapor Intrusion Assessment: Environmental Science and Technology, Just Accepted Manuscript....

Concentrations of tetrachloroethylene (PCE) in points from interpolated tetrachloroethylene soil data gridded at a 1-m interval at the Vienna Wells site, Vienna, Missouri, 2012-2015. These data were extracted at 1-meter intervals from interpolating published soil data (doi: https://doi.org/10.5066/F71835D8), which was created using the inverse-distance weighting method at a 1-meter interval, the mean PCE concentration at each location, a power of 2, and minimum and maximum neighbor search of 10 and 15. These data support the following publication: Wilson, J.L., Samaranayake, V.A., Limmer, M.A., Schumacher, J.G., Burken, J.G., 2017, Contaminant Gradients in Trees: Directional Tree Coring Reveals Boundaries of Soil...
This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release contains tree-core, groundwater, and soil data collected at the Vienna Wells Superfund site in Vienna, Missouri by the U.S. Geological Survey between 2011 and 2016. Concentrations of tetrachloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), and 1,1,2-Trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane (CFC-113) are reported for each location or sample in each medium. Tree-core sampling was conducted over seven days during six major phases occurring during September 2011, May 2013, August 2013, July 2014, May 2015, and October 2015. A total of 470 tree-core samples were collected and analyzed using established methods. A total of 56 groundwater samples were collected from monitoring wells on...

Interpolated dataset of concentrations of tetrachloroethylene in soil samples at the Vienna Wells site, Vienna, Missouri. Interpolated soil data are from a published soil sample dataset (doi: https://doi.org/10.5066/F71835D8) using inverse-distance weighting at a 1-m interval, a power of 2, minimum and maximum neighbor search of 10 and 15, and within 50 meters of tree-core data collected on July 29, 2014. Also contains information on distances between each tree and soil location within a 50-meter radius of each tree. These data support the following publication: Wilson, J.L., Samaranayake, V.A., Limmer, M.A., Schumacher, J.G., Burken, J.G., 2017, Contaminant Gradients in Trees: Directional Tree Coring Reveals Boundaries...
