Short description: Characterization and remediation of contaminated ground water at fractured bedrock sites are hampered by the complex geology, the heterogeneous distribution and orientation of the fractures, and the movement of contaminants and fluids in fracture networks and rock matrices. Several characterization and remediation technologies are currently being used both at pilot- and full-scale levels to improve the understanding of these sites. The on-line database provides information on the characterization and remediation technologies used at fractured bedrock sites.
