TPH Working Group Series, Volumes 1-5
The overlying theme to this series is the importance of exposure potentialwhen defining human health risk. The fate and transport of a chemical or mixture defines the exposure route, and in conjunction with receptor properties, concentrations at receptors. If fate and transport is not considered,unrealistic human health risks could be calculated, resulting in misinformeddecisions about site clean-up and regulatory guidance. We hope you findthese documents to be useful in your efforts to evaluate and determineacceptable risk-based criteria at petroleum sites.

Volume 1: Petroleum Hydrocarbon Analysis of Soil and Water in the Environment
Wade WeismanU.S. $19.95, Year 98, pp.98 ISBN 1-884-940-14-5
This document provides an overview of the complexities of petroleum hydrocarbon characterization andrisk assessment, and a discussion on the analytical methods available. In addition, to descriptions aboutgeneral analytical methods, a summary is provided of a proposed GC-Based analytical method,developed by the Working group, that reports hydrocarbon results in equivalent carbon number groups or fractions.
Volume 2: Composition of Petroleum Mixtures
Thomas L. Potter; Kathleen E. SimmonsU.S. $39.95, Year 98, pp.102 ISBN 1-884-940-19-6
This document describes the chemical composition and characteristics of petroleum fuel mixtures. Itpresents the salient features of petroleum chemistry, describes petroleum fuel mixture production, anddisplays composition data tables that are summaries from many sources for each of the petroleum fuelmixtures.Appendix I - Individual Sample Fuel Mixture Composition Data Tables
Volume 3: Selection of Representative TPH Fractions Based on Fate and TransportConsiderations
John Gustafson; Joan Griffith Tell; Doug OremU.S. $19.95, Year 97, pp.102 ISBN 1-884-940-12-9
This document summarizes the methods used to delineate TPH into equivalent carbon number fractionsbased on fate and transport considerations. Once the fractions were defined, fraction-specific values of relevant physical-chemical properties were calculated based on correlations to boiling point. Theanalytical method, fate and transport considerations and toxicity criteria (see vol. 4) are the technicalelements which fit into a risk-based framework for determining human Heath Based Criteria at petroleumhydrocarbon contaminated sites.
