German term or phrase: Porenluftmessungen
This comes from a list of words. Context: new building built by the Swiss Federal Railways. Seems to be a Swiss word.

More context:

Konzentrationswerte für die Beurteilung der Porenluft
belasteter Standorte

Für die Beurteilung von Porenluft belasteter Standorte gelten die Konzentrationswerte der nachfolgenden Tabelle. Verursacht der Standort Emissionen, für die keine Konzentrationswerte bestehen, namentlich Gerüche oder Staub, so ist er sanierungsbedürftig, wenn die Emissionen zu übermässigen Immissionen im Sinne der Luftreinhalte-Verordnung vom 16. Dezember 19851 führen können.

Für die Probenahmen und die Durchführung der Porenluftanalysen gelten folgende Anforderungen:

a.
Die Probenahmen müssen anhand von Bodengassonden an einer für die Belastung des Standortes repräsentativen Anzahl von Messstellen erfolgen. Es muss sichergestellt werden, dass bei den Probenahmen keine Fremdluft angesaugt wird.
b.
In der Porenluft müssen nur diejenigen Stoffe analysiert werden, mit deren Vorkommen am Standort auf Grund der historischen Untersuchung zu rechnen ist. Werden bloss Summenparameter analysiert, so gilt als Beurteilungskriterium stets der niedrigste Konzentrationswert der Einzelstoffe.
