Geostatistics proves its value for site remediation once again


Source: Geovariances

A recent study conducted by Geovariances, the French Antea Group and the Swiss consulting company eOde for the French RECORD* network has validated the value of geostatistics for the characterization of contaminated sites.

The study recalls that geostatistics provides a rigorous methodological framework for contamination mapping and volume/tonnage estimation. But most importantly, it points out that, though introducing geostatistics in a remediation project may lead to an increased cost, this extra cost is nothing compared to the significant savings it brings during site remediation.

* RECORD is a French network open to all public or privately owned organizations. It offers a unique, threefold framework in which industry, public bodies and researchers can engage in collaborative research projects.
