Hydrogeophysical Site Characterization — Problems and New Technologies

  • U. Yaramanci


Site exploration and characterization are the most essential part of investigations of contaminated soil, rock and ground water as well as waste itself. The basic need is that of identifying the contamination problem and its extent in general. The decisions on measures to be taken for redeveloping the site and monitoring the success of the measures requires considerable knowledge about the site.
