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

    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.
