In-Situ probe for identification of heavy metals and elements in soils and sediments delivering real time data for efficient site investigation. The recently developed Fugro XRF-CPT-Cone measures heavy metals in soils and saturated sediments in high resolution and real time. This approach allows for fast screening of contamination or a detailed investigation of heavy metal distribution which may be found in soil or sediments in rivers, harbours and lakes.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
• Provides concentrations of heavy metals or other elements above an atomic number of 16 versus depth and in real time.
• Simultaneous recording of geotechnical parameters and stratification with detailed soil characterization.
• Investigation and 3D characterization of heavy metals in soils (contamination hot spots, mining tailings, landfills, etc.)
• Assessment of tailings, lagoons or landfills for their content of potential secondary mining elements.
