Risk Assessment and Environmental Management: A Case Study in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada
Soil contamination can create unacceptable ecological or human health risks. Mapping of contaminated soil sites and the resulting cleanup are time consuming and expensive tasks, requiring extensive amounts of geology, hydrology, chemistry and computer modeling skills.
This book reports on one of the largest and most comprehensive risk assessment studies of its kind in North America on chemicals of concern, and what risk management is required to reduce these risks.
Written by worldwide experts, this book will be of interest to academics, researchers, policy-makers and consultants working with the next generation of new soil contamination cases.
