    Abstract

    The Environmental Tomography - a Research and Modelling System for Contaminated Areas Project is part of the Finnish Technical Development Centre's construction environmental technology programme.An environmental development project is being jointly conducted by Viatek Ltd. and Technical Research Centre of FinlandCommunities and Infrastructure in connection with numerous pilot research projects during 1996-1998.Environmental tomography systematically looks for those soil-groundwater volume structure/properties that simultaneously satisfy point measurement values known from the volume being studied, correlations between diffe ent geodata (geology,geophysics and hydrology), the statistical behaviour of point properties and indirect measurement and test observations (groundwater elevations, geophysical responses, pumping responses, content distributions, tomographic inversion) As a result of this project there has been selected an approach method for investigation of contaminated areas.Also an integration and visualisation method has been selected during this project.
