Book summarises contaminated land science

A NEW BOOK aims to provide industry professionals with the state of the science of contaminated land.

Assessment and reclamation of contaminated land, published at the end of last year, is edited by Professor Ronald Hester of the University of York and Professor Roy Harrison of the University of Birmingham.

It deals specifically with issues relating to human exposure to contaminated land and evidence linking contamination with effects on public health.

The opening chapter summarises the origins and extent of the problem and reviews the latest developments in contaminated land management.

It also outlines regulations and aims of the new contaminated land framework, and discusses risk assessment and management and site investigation options.

The contributions from leading experts provide a useful resource for those involved in land use planning and development and consultants and engineers involved in contaminated site investigation and remediation.

It will also be useful to environmental regulators and teachers and students in higher education.

lAssessment and reclamation of contaminated land is published by Thomas Telford, tel: 020 7665 2464.
