CORIA, Ignacio D  and  DE LA VEGA, Matías. Determination of the Remediation Effectiveness of Soils Accidentally Contaminated by Sulphuric Acid by Geophysical Methods. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.1, pp.3-8. ISSN 0718-0764.

This work demonstrates that the diagnosis of soils that have been contaminated with dangerous substances after remediation can be done with non invasive techniques, with cost and time reduction, and avoiding the sample cross contamination risks of invasive methods. The non-invasive methods used in this particular case of accidental contamination with concentrated sulphuric acid were electromagnetic induction and geoelectric. According to the results, it is concluded that the complementary use of both methods allows making a correct diagnosis of the remediation effectiveness.

Keywords : electromagnetic induction; geoelectric method; soil contamination; remediation effectiveness; invasive diagnosis.
