From the reviews:
"This book takes on the formidable task of bringing the interdisciplinary and diverse aspects ... of contaminated site investigation together in one place. ... Each chapter of this book is written as a `stand alone' subject discussion ... . The stand alone chapter design does allow readers to pick and chose which chapters they wish to read and in what sequence. ... I found the discussions on viewing soils as a valuable and potentially nonrenewable resource to be an important and critical topic." (Mark Sprenger, Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management, Vol. 8 (1), January, 2012)
