High Resolution Site Characterisation Seminar
You are invited to join Australian and International presenters for a day packed with discussion on High Resolution Site Characterisation (HRSC) in Sydney on Monday 2 March 2020.
The seminar will start with keynote speaker Professor Beth Parker, NSERC Industrial Research Chair – Hydrogeology, University of Guelph, sharing her expertise, and talking on “Where is High Resolution data invaluable, and are the tools currently available utilising data to its full potential?”
Following the keynote, over twenty industry professionals will present across four HRSC focused sessions:
Sustainability – how HRSC can decrease the generation of waste during site assessment, and identify where active remediation is perhaps not the right option, or can be minimised to target specific zones.
Practicality – the best techniques for each setting, and tips and tricks to understand the benefits and limitations of different technologies.
Technical – detailed information on familiar techniques, and introduction to new ones such as resistivity mapping of landfills, or high resolution soil gas surveys in challenging environments.
Return on Investigation – how to decide when to use HRSC and get maximum ‘bang for buck’, and case studies quantifying savings for property managers.
The day will finish with a presentation summarising existing and forthcoming international HRSC guidance follow by an open forum for questions and discussion.
There will be lunch provided as well as breaks throughout the day for networking and socialising, an opportunity to see a MIP up close, and an informal networking gathering the evening before for those interested.
Presenters will include (but can be subject to change):
