[1] We present the results of five experiments investigating
the dielectric properties of granular materials partially
saturated with trichloroethylene (TCE), a common dense
non-aqueous contaminant. Previous research has
investigated the radar signatures of similar solvents in
controlled field experiments but no core-scale measurements
have verified the appropriate petrophysical model.
Broadband dielectric measurements were performed using
a time domain reflectometry (TDR) system coupled to a
solvent-compatible coaxial transmission line. Two synthetic
samples and three natural aquifer samples were fully
