In-Situ Sensing of
the Effect of Remediation
DGT offers great potential as a simple diagnostic tool for assessing the risk posed by contaminated land, but it still requires careful testing. This project will use DGT to perform measurements on the two key groups of contaminated land in Central Scotland that are the subject of an URGENT Programme first call project entitled Integrated Assessment and Modelling of Contaminant Behaviour, Transport and Impact at Remediable Urban Sites. It will exploit the information available to further the understanding of DGT measurement in real conditions. The work will be fully integrated into the existing project, for which it will provide complementary information on the kinetics of metal re-supply and potential availability.

Although focused on a series of specific sites in Central Scotland, the outcome and benefits of the project will be generic.
