This course is the fourth of a five course series in the contaminated site technical studies. The field school involves four full days of hands-on sampling exercises giving the students an opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills from Contaminated Site Investigation Process: sampling strategies, design and implementation of sampling plans, and interpretation of results. The sampling exercises include: (1) soil sampling using a drill rig, backhoe, and hand augers; (2) ground water sampling by installation, development, and testing of monitoring wells; (3) overview of surface water and sediment sampling techniques; and (4) demonstration of geophysical investigation techniques. The focus of the course is on the role of the site investigator in the contaminated-site management process.
