Geosyntec Recognized for Vapor Intrusion Research in Environment and Pollution

Geosyntec and its practitioners were recognized for their research regarding vapor intrusion in a recent literature review conducted by Jeroen Provoost and Karen Victor and published in the journal Environment and Pollution.

The article, "Global Research Collaboration for Vapour Intrusion," uses social network analysis to better understand how global research into VI is taking place and evolving. This analysis considered 54 years (from 1966 through 2020), and over 560 publications.

Provoost and Victor find that among research organizations, Geosyntec ranks fourth in research productivity, behind the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Brown University, and Arizona State University, and is first among consulting firms. This recognition is the result of the firm's commitment to developing, demonstrating, and validating new solutions to this complex problem.

In addition, Geosyntec'sTodd McAlary, Ph.D., P.Eng (Ontario, British Columbia), P.G. (North Carolina) was called out as the fifth-most productive author on the subject, with 25 publications in books, journals, conference proceedings, and presentations. Todd has more than 30 years of consulting experience focused on monitoring and mitigating the migration of volatile organic compound vapors from the subsurface into buildings and assessing the related human health risks. He leads Geosyntec's vapor intrusion practice and is also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto.

According to Todd, Geosyntec's commitment to collaborative research "enables us to provide better solutions for our clients and commands the respect needed for us to negotiate favorable outcomes with regulatory agencies."

Environment and Pollution is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed journal that focuses on original studies in environmental science and engineering.
