  • Environmental and health risk assessment of an oil contaminated site in the Mexican tropical southeast

    The aim of the present study was the environmental and health risk assessment of the oil contaminated soil in the Mexican tropic. The case is based on the total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) and polycyclic aromatic (PAH) soil contamination resulting from the activities of the oil industry over 70 years. The results of this study were estimated using CalTOX, a multimedia exposure model. The ...

  • Environmental impact assessment in Thailand

    Developers in Thailand often regard EIA as a necessary evil but this does not do the process justice as it also makes sound economic sense. Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) refers to the formal process used to predict the environmental consequences of a proposed project such as a new condominium or resort development. The primary objective of an EIA is to ensure that the potential impacts, ...

  • Vadose zone modeling of dispersed waste sites in the framework of an integrated stochastic environmental transport and impacts assessment code for the Hanford Site

    The system assessment capability (SAC) is the first total-system stochastic simulator to address inventory distribution, environmental release and transport, and impacts to human health and ecological, economic, and cultural resources from hundreds of radiological and chemical waste disposal sites for the entire Hanford Site in southeast Washington State. Flow and contaminant transport modeling ...

  • Conducting The Phase I Site Assessment - Historical Use

    This is the first in a series of five articles relating to conducting Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. Each article will attempt to give the reader a thorough understanding of a specific aspect of the Phase I process and Clayton's commitment to exceeding the requirements of ASTM Standard E 1527 Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment ...


  • The terrestrial ecosystem monitoring sites: a utility assessment

    Ecological research sites generate data which are potentially useful at the national, regional and global scales. However, most of the data remain embedded in local, project-specific research programmes. The primary role of the Global Terrestrial Observing System (GTOS) is to act as a data broker and bring researchers and modellers together in order to better understand global change processes in ...

  • Quality Assurance Guidance for Conducting Brownfields Site Assessments

    Executive Summary Many sites across the nation once used for industrial and commercial purposes are now abandoned or under-used. Some of these sites — often referred to as “Brownfields”— are contaminated; others are perceived or suspected to be contaminated. In 1993, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Brownfields Economic Redevelopment Initiative to empower States, Tribes, ...

  • Quantitative risk assessment for contaminated sites in Spain

    Environmental Quantitative Risk Assessment is one of the key factors in the Decision Making Process for contaminated sites. Numerous decisions have to be made before, during and after conducting a quantitative risk assessment.Risk assessment is based on the information gathered previously: Historical information (Phase I) Site characterization (Phase II) Toxicological ...

  • Risk assessment and brownfields-determining exposure to site contaminants

    The USEPA’s Brownfields Program was developed to facilitate the rehabilitation of contaminated property for re-development. EPA has set forth criteria that must be met for a revitalized property to be used for residential, commercial or industrial purposes. The main thrust of these criteria is the long-term protection of residents or visitors (including shoppers and business employees). As ...
