Stop by our booth #7 to know more about Kartotrak software latest version, attend our short course and oral presentation while at the conference to better understand the major role of geostatistics for contaminated site characterization.

Attend our oral presentation: GEOSTATISTICAL MAPPING OF HEALTH RISKS TO IMPROVE DECISION MAKING WHEN REGENERATING CONTAMINATED SITES (CARTORISK project)

Abstract:

Redevelopment of industrial sites is a complex task which requires looking for the best compromise between several development alternatives. Reduction of health risks associated with site pollution must be balanced against remediation costs for various exposure scenarios depending on the construction projects and related uses. This analysis is particularly difficult in the highly uncertain context encountered in most of industrial sites. Site contamination is indeed always imperfectly known, due to the high complexity of spatial pollution distribution in soil or transfer media and the limited number of data collected during the investigation stage…

Attend our short course: AN OVERVIEW OF GEOSTATISTICS FOR CONTAMINATED SITE CHARACTERIZATION on September 3rd from 13:00 pm to 16:00 pm

Overview:

As you are involved in the characterization or the remediation of contaminated sites, you regularly face the following issues:
– How to extract the main information from the whole set of data in order to improve the contamination understanding?
– How to map contamination and which interpolation method is appropriate?
– How to precisely assess contaminated soil volumes or pollutant masses?
– How to quantify uncertainties related to the delineation of impacted areas, while integrating geological heterogeneities?
During the short course, you will understand why geostatistics provides relevant methods to address these issues and how they can be applied in operational settings. Methodological talks illustrated with practical examples on real cases involving various types of pollution: chemical or radiological, leak from a source, reworked fills, etc. These examples involve several environmental media: soil, sediment, facilities (concrete).
