The purpose of this book is to help engineers and scientists better understand contaminated sediment sites and identify and design remedial approaches that are more efficient and effective. Contaminated sediment management is a difficult and costly exercise that is rarely addressed with easily identified and implemented remedies. It is hoped that this book can help identify and implement management approaches that provide an optimal, if not entirely satisfactory, solution to sediment contaminant problems.¿
¿¿Describes key sediment processes that separate sediments from contaminated soil sites
This volume is useful to the technical practitioner as well as the research scientist and engineer in the field
Seeks to identify key uncertainties and resulting research and development needs for the assessment and management of contaminated sediments¿
