About this book

This volume outlines the different strategies that are useful in the investigation and subsequent remediation of military bases. Particular attention is paid to the pollution of groundwater. The book contains a review of useful remediation techniques and examples of their application to polluted military bases. Several mathematical models are demonstrated, showing their predictive value for real examples. A detailed list is given of chemical pollutants that can be found on a military base. Strategies are described for the investigation and determination of the future of a polluted military site. Examples are given, obtained from practical experience of dealing with old, contaminated sites.
