Innovation in site characterisation to reduce project risks and lifecycle costs

Understanding the conceptual site model at contaminated sites is recognised as one of the key components of in determining the success of a remediation project. This talk will provide an overview of some innovative approaches to site characterisation an illustrate how they can contribute to an improved understanding of the subsurface leading to reduce projects risks, lowered life cycles costs and ultimately more sustainable outcomes.

Dr. Kevin Leahy will be speaking in the following theatres:

Wednesday 12.30 - 13.00: Innovation in site characterisation to reduce project risks and lifecycle costs
