  1. 1. Value of Information Analysis for Site Investigations in Remediation Projects

    Author : Pär-Erik Back; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; uncertainty; value of information; soil; decision analysis; sampling; remediation; contaminated land; site investigation;

    Abstract : Site investigations of contaminated land are associated with high costs. From a societal point of view, just enough economic resources should be spent to allow societys limited resources to be allocated optimally to sustainable development. READ MORE

  2. 2. Uncertainty, variability and environmental risk analysis

    University dissertation from Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Monika Filipsson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Contaminated land; exposure assessment; exposure factors; risk analysis; risk perception; uncertainty; variability; probabilistic risk assessment; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : The negative effects of hazardous substances and possible measures that can be taken are evaluated in the environmental risk analysis process, consisting of risk assessment, risk communication and risk management. Uncertainty due to lack of knowledge and natural variability are always present in this process. READ MORE

  3. 3. Control of land use and groundwater quality in Colorado and Sweden

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Land use; groundwater quality; organization; legislation; perspectives of the decision makers; plan; planning process; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : The aim of this research is to shed light upon the organization and the system of regulations adopted by modern, industrialized societies in the interactive fields of land use and groundwater. By studying groundwater, long-term perspectives become more clear. The following questions are examined. Are there adequate rules (e. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Bayesian Decision Analysis for Evaluating Alternative Actions at Contaminated Sites

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Jenny Norrman; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; influence diagrams; Bayesian decision analysis; groundwater; data worth analysis; contaminated sites; decision analysis; risk analysis;

    Abstract : Today, contaminated land is a widespread infrastructural problem and it is widely recognised that returning all contaminated sites to background levels, or even to levels suitable for the most sensitive land use, is not technically or financially feasible. The large number of contaminated sites and the high costs of remediation, are strong incentives for applying cost-efficient investigation and remediation strategies that consider the inherent uncertainties.

  5. 5. Batch Sorption Studies of Aqueous Cadmium and Lead from Contaminated Water onto Selected Biosorbents

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Grace Kizito Bakyayita; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biosorbents; cadmium; competitive uptake; Freundlich; pseudo-second-order kinetics; Langmuir; lead; remediation; risks; speciation; toxicity effects; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : Groundwater, wastewater, surface runoff and surface water samples from Lake Victoria basin, Uganda was assessed for trace metals contamination. Untreated, base-treated and peroxide-treated biosorbents from Albizia coriaria, Coffea canephora, Cyperus papyrus, Erythrina abyssinica and Musa spp were investigated for removal of selected trace metals from contaminated water in batch studies.
