Building on the benchmark established by the first edition, the second edition provides coverage of new procedures and technologies for an expanded range of site assessments. This definitive book integrates ASTM standards and links them to the practice of site investigations. It introduces sections on statistical techniques for ground water monitoring and remediation programs, including information that can provide a defensible basis for determining whether to continue or end a remedial treatment program. A new chapter on natural attenuation reflects the incorporation of this approach into several state-level remediation programs.
