Sampling & Monitoring

Environmental sampling, analysis and monitoring is used to determine background, natural and harmful pollutant concentrations of chemical constituents in the environment. Samples of soil, sediment, water and air are analysed in the field (in-situ) while others are conducted in the laboratory. We can design sampling programmes, analyse data statistically and establish trends in environmental parameters. The environmental monitoring is also used in support of environmental investigation/remediation activities.

Monitoring can be used in the preparation of environmental impact assessments, as well as in many circumstances in which human activities carry a risk of harmful effects on the natural environment and human health. It can be undertaken as part of a site investigation or longer term monitoring requirement.
