Geostatistics applied to contaminated site characterization and remediation

The global economy and success of contaminated site characterization and remediation projects and the environmental exposure are strongly impacted by the quantity of material to be excavated, treated, then re-used or eliminated. Appropriate data acquisition, reliable mapping, precise waste categorization, and uncertainty assessment are key issues for achieving successful projects.

Whatever the contamination type (chemical or radiological) you are facing and the impacted medium (soil, concrete, sediments or groundwater), geostatistics provides you with the most efficient framework to meet these goals and improve your decision-making process.

Data Quality Control

Before starting an evaluation of the contamination leading to decision-making tools for site clean-up, it is essential to ensure data quality. Thus, based on solid and reliable foundations, uncertainties occurring during the different steps of the decision process will be better controlled and the final quality of the project improved.

The objective of this white paper is to assess at best the validity of the data through visual, statistical and geostatistical basic tools before going further into their analysis.
