Call for Cases for the next NICOLE workshop
The NICOLE network event on 10-12 May 2006 in Carcassonne (France) will deal
about 'In situ measuring and monitoring: innovations and practical
experience for a cost efficient approach: A different approach for soil and
groundwater investigations'. This will be a technical meeting, with the aim
of exchanging knowledge on developments and practical cases, and show best
practices. An excursion to a site (former goldmining area) is included in
The program will be built around three blocks of techniques:
1) techniques that look into the hydrological and geological
properties of the soil
2) techniques that look into pollutants and (geo)chemical processes
3) and techniques that look into the biological processes in the
The Organising Committee of the event welcomes your input to the program!
We are looking for presentations on cases with the following
a) Focus on in situ and on site technology for site assessment.
b) Built around real cases.
c) Built around 3 themes: geology ((hydro?)geological characterisation),
chemical characterisation (pollutants and geochemical processes), biology
(characterisation of biological processes).
d) Built around contributing to decisions rather than 'wanting to know what
is in the soil'.
e) Giving attention to costs versus results (results being contributing to
f) Novelties allowed.
g) No focus on laboratory analyses.
If you would like to present a case, then please inform the NICOLE
Secretariat ultimately 31 January!
