Contaminated Soil

Classic registration of contaminants in soil is usually done by specifying an identified pollutant, giving the form in which it is present (solid, liquid, or gas), which analysis was performed, and the amount measured in a defined unit.

Instead of specifying this, it is possible to specify the contaminants in pollution classes. The protocol to be filled in is then used in an alternative way. The pollution classes are given in-depth intervals - this means that you enter pairs of rows that indicate the interval.

Conventional input of pollutants can be combined in the same protocol, but these must not be specified within a depth range for pollutant class. This can instead be indicated “above” or “below” a specific depth range for pollution class.

The example below shows a protocol with both specific pollutants and depth intervals with pollution classes - in green dotted lines.

Quadri for Windows

Importing Geosuite data into a Quadri model gives you the opportunity to visualize the pollution as boreholes. Using the drawing rule “Environmental interpretation” the pollution classes will be presented by the coloring of the borehole string:

Graphical interpretation

Using the default tool for Graphical interpretation (Geosuite Panel), TIN models may be designed and used for the analysis of volumes of contaminated soil.
