A 60-ml sorption cell utilizing 0.5 mil PVC membranes permeable to H2S is described. NaOH is used as the sorbing solution. The cell is capable of detecting H2S in soil zones containing < 0.1 ppm in groundwater over short and prolonged periods of anaerobic flooding under conditions of a fluctuating water table.
