Abstract:
This dissertation presents the findings of a project where, following investigation and assessment, a million tonnes of sand and gravel at a contaminated former US Air Force Base was excavated for use as aggregate. The process required on-site screening for petroleum hydrocarbons of over 7,000 soil samples and provided an opportunity to assess the efficiency of the investigation, assess the application of geophysics of hydrocarbon contaminated sites, and look at the role of aggregate extraction in the contaminated land industry.
