A flux chamber is an effective and recognized means of sampling off gassing surfaces, such as landfills and settling ponds. Because there has been little discussion on the survey patterns used for deploying flux chambers. This thesis looks into developing a scalable survey pattern as part of a flux chamber test methodology that can accurately give a representative sample of the emission components and the emission rate of the entire area of interest. The test methodology evolved out of literature review and experiences of two case studies which are discussed within this thesis.
