Proper delineation of the extents of buried debris/materials that are associated with landfill sites can be a serious problem for companies that are planning on re-developing the site, or for environmental concerns associated with the buried materials. Geophysical tools can assist in accurately delineating the depth and lateral extents of buried waste within abandoned landfill sites, or examining the characteristics of active landfills. Typically, a combination of geophysical methods is used to precisely identify these landfill characteristics.
- Delineate the depth and lateral extents of abandoned landfill materials
- Identify potential zones of contamination associated with buried waste
- Identify large buried objects (drums, metal debris) that are of concern
- Characterize active landfill project sites
