Revision of D653-21 Standard Terminology Relating to Soil, Rock, and Contained Fluids


Ballot for Removal of term Site Characterization from D653. The definition developed by subcommittee D18.01 removed data collection activities from the term. Site Characterization is used in the titles of numerous geo-environmental field data collection standards in subcommittee D18.21 and in committees D34 and E50. The term does not need to be defined, as the terms Site Characterization, Exploration, and Investigation are used synonymously in titles of field data collection standards in committee D18.
