UPDATE:- Introducing the new CL:AIRE/CIEH guidance on the use of statistical tests in the assessment of soil contamination data.
ESI’s course in Geostatistics for Contaminated Land is an important hands-on course for contaminated land professionals updated to reflect the new national guidance on the use of statistical tests in the assessment of soil contamination data. The programme has been prepared to equip delegates with the understanding of how to develop strategies to collect and manage data and to use tools necessary to store, analyse and report on environmental data.
Featured Topics:- Geostatistics for Contaminated Land
- Legislation and regulatory context
- Introduction to statistics for contaminated land
- Updated guidance on the use of statistical techniques
- Development of statistically robust sampling strategies
Legislation and regulatory context
The lecture will set out the use of statistical techniques in the context of contaminated land. It will outline the basis of and need for the recently updated national guidance on the use of statistical tests for the assessment of soil contamination data.
Introduction to statistics for contaminated land
A lecture to introduce statistics and how they can be used to plan data collection strategies and assess contaminated land data.
Updated guidance on the use of statistical techniques
The new guidance sets out step-by-step procedures for conducting statistical tests when assessing soil data in the context of either the land use planning system or Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. This lecture and hands-on session will explain how on to conduct these statistical techniques when comparing soil contamination data to a critical concentration as part of wider contaminated land risk assessment projects in both of these legal contexts.
Development of statistically robust sampling strategies
This lecture will describe how statistical techniques can be used to develop robust sampling strategies for the collection of contaminated land data. A hands-on session will provide delegates with the opportunity to develop a sampling plan based on statistical principles.
