Superfund Risk Assessment in Soil Contamination Studies: Third Volume

Editor(s): K. B. Hoddinott

Presents state-of-the-art research on soil risk assessment methodology. This publications contains 10 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers covering the following key areas:

Background Determination and Statistics -- one paper explores background concentration estimates using inorganic analytes from on-site soil samples; the other discusses small data sets statistics.

Ecological Risk -- The quotient method in risk assessment and the use of bioaccumulation and food-chain analysis for evaluating ecological risks are examined in two papers.

Risk Management -- Six wide-ranging papers feature such topics as procedural and computerized methods for site risk assessment; stormwater runoff water quality evaluation at management for hazardous chemical sites; statistical test use in making cleanup decisions at superfund sites; a risk-based decision model to optimize remediation choices; and the application of influence diagram as a valid risk assessment tool.

This is an invaluable resource for risk assessors, environmental scientists and engineers, geologists, industrial hygienists and biologists.
