Monitoring and monitoring plans

  • Ibrahim A. Mirsal


Before setting up any monitoring plans, complete information about the investigation site should be carefully collected and analysed. This saves a great deal of effort and financial costs and allows a suitable selection of the monitoring technical installations. Important information about the site should include geological, pedological, hydro-geological, and historical data about land use in the area. Geological and hydro-geological information can be taken from geological maps or from information supplied by the local geological survey. For pedological information, soil maps or individual field investigations are normally used.
