Field measurements of gas transfer at hydraulic structures are notoriously difficult and imprecise. A technique which measures the transfer of hydrocarbon tracer gases has been tested and developed further. It has been successfully tested with propane as the tracer gas. The technique shows promise for field applications using naturally occurring dissolved methane as the tracer gas.
