We present a study of groundwater contaminants from infiltration of heavy hydrocarbon pollution sources. This study primarily focuses on the volatile and non-volatile components of crude and processed oils. Many storage terminals and buried pipelines have experienced historical failures and present industrialized Northwest Indiana with a source of legacy pollution. We examine the aqueous phase and gas phase components of crude and diesel oils for identification of groundwater matrix markers from hydrocarbon emulsions.
