Short description: Technological advances over the past decade have created a whole new set of tools to improve site cleanup and long-term monitoring. Computerization, microfabrication, and biotechnology permit the development of analytical equipment that has capabilities that blur the distinction between 'screening methods' and 'definitive methods.' In the next decade, technological advances are likely to alter that landscape even more dramatically. Information in this section is structured much like a typical encyclopedia, with standard categories of information provided for each technology class. However, throughout the narrative, we include hyperlinks to more detailed information, further explanations, diagrams, and additional supporting data should the reader be interested in learning more. We are continuously updating information in this section and developing new sections on other technologies.
