Here he undertook teaching, training and research activity. One of his projects was to research better ways to characterise ground-gas contamination hazards.

Successful Continuous Ground-Gas Monitoring and Risk Assessment

Continuous ground-gas monitoring services have been provided by GGS for almost ten years. In that time the technique has moved from being a novel esoteric approach to a main stream monitoring tool.

This seminar will draw on GGS’ extensive experience to distil out the elements that make up a successful investigation and risk assessment campaign. It will debunk some of the myths and provide a taster of things to come.
