Long description: This research addresses a crucial step in redeveloping areas of potentially contaminated land; the characterisation of contamination. Measurements are usually required to assess the levels of potentially harmful contaminants. These measurements are used to guide the subsequent decisions that are taken, such as whether remediation is necessary, and may influence the value of the land. The reliability of these measurements is important as the financial penalties arising from misclassifying a site, or sub-areas within it, can be substantial. For example, undetected areas of contamination may be left in place, leading to unforeseen delays in site redevelopment, or litigation. Alternatively, land may be incorrectly classified as contaminated and be unnecessarily remediated. The research undertaken by this project demonstrates that the method employed can be of substantial commercial interest to stakeholders involved with the contaminated land industry. The innovative methods presented in this report are both simple and inexpensive to apply and can significantly improve the reliability and cost-effectiveness of the decisions made.
