Short description: This bulletin presents a survey of a representative range of geophysical SI methods, which may be used for contaminated land and groundwater assessments. It includes an analysis of well established and relatively new geophysical techniques, and illustrates their utility and application for site characterisation using examples from research undertaken by the authors.
