Network oriented risk-assessment by in-situ screening of contaminated sites (NORISC)

Objective

NORISC aims at the revitalisation of contaminated sites in urban areas. The project combines and integrates new and existing methods in order to provide a standard guideline for efficient risk assessment of contamination profiles. This guideline will enhance site characterisation and risk assessment and minimise time and cost for investigation, redevelopment and remediation. The approach is based on combinations of measurement methods within geophysics, geochemistry and hydrogeology as well as data processing with GIS, geostatistics and modelling. Measurement methods will be focused on in-site screening including both existing and new methods that will be developed and tested. The guideline will be established in the form of a decision support software system. This will be a valuable tool for city planners, decision makers, landowners, and investors. The software will be integrated with the management support system COSIMA. The consortium consists of cities, research institutes, and universities from Germany, Hungary, Sweden, Greece, Italy, and USA.
