Good practice guidance for practitioners from practitioners. This title was prepared following a comprehensive review of current guidance documents and detailed consultation with practitioners, developers, local authorities, funders and insurers. It sets out rational approaches to site investigations where methane or landfill gas could be present. The book addresses the requirements and duties of different stakeholders in the development process for reliable information at different stages about potential gas hazards and provides a general framework in which to plan site-specific gas investigations to satisfy these different needs. Tables, flowcharts and examples are used to illustrate the text throughout. Key words: ground investigation and characterisation.
