Types of contaminated land

Abstract

Throughout this book the reader is reminded that the recognition of contaminated land, as a specific problem of redevelopment, as distinct from general derelict land problems, is relatively new. As a result, the full extent of its occurrence and the forms it can take are therefore, to some degree, still uncertain. A further consequence is the bewildering array of statements and definitions presented in the literature relating to contaminated land. (Chapter 1)
