Innovative site investigation for contaminated land

Investigation techniques have evolved substantially over the past few decades, particularly with increasing use of geophysical and remote sensing techniques for data acquisition and interpretation. Many of these techniques could be used in acquiring more than one type of data/information about the site.

This presentation will discuss innovative techniques used in contaminated land projects. It will described the current practice and new approaches; for example the use of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs)/drones in investigation for land projects.
