Soil Survey

Case Study: Metals Survey – On-site Field Portable X-ray Fuorescence To Rapidly Identify And Locate Concentrations of Metals.



The Issue: The Client needed to understand how trace metals were distributed through a soil profile in an environmental management program.


The Outcome:  In-situ analyses of a trench face were made using field portable X-ray fluorescence, to map the metals’ distributions through the soil profile.
