ISOSOIL Contaminat Specific Isotope Analysis as sharp environmental-forensics tools for site characterization, monitoring and source apportionment of pollutants in soil

Project info
Description: 

CSIA has high potential as a complementary method next to standard concentration measurement and monitoring. The main advantages are higher accuracy in the site characterization, deeper insight in site-specific processes, and quicker conclusions regarding the sites reaction kinetics (e.g. degradation rates for contaminants).
isoSoil aims to present a complete package of solutions to make CSIA accessible for environmental consultants and others working with CSIA, such as scientists or enterprises offering analytical services.
The final package will cover the complete analytical chain from planning and sampling, sample analysis and interpretation of data. This is disseminated as guidelines and commercially available software, due for release in 2012.
