It can include the use of in field instrumentation, sampling strategies and techniques, laboratory analysis and data assessment and visualization.

This an introductory training workshop and is intended for individuals involved the radiological characterization and remediation of radioactively contaminated land. The course is particularly applicable to early career practitioners, scientists and technicians carrying out radiological characterization and groundwater monitoring activities and trainees pursuing a career within the field of radioactive contaminated land management.
