Exponent Scientists Dr. Charles Menzie, Mr. Pieter Booth, and Ms. Sheryl Law, have co-authored the chapter, “Use of Decision Support Systems to Address Contaminated Coastal Sediments: Experience in the United States,” in the book Decision Support Systems for Risk-Based Management of Contaminated Sites. This book addresses decision making in environmental risk management for contaminated sites, focusing on the potential role of decision support systems in informing the management of chemical pollutants and their effects.
The decision support systems described by Exponent’s scientists reflect their experience with some of the most important sites in North America along with experience with major restoration projects. The methodologies described by Exponent have broad applications for environmental decision-making in coastal areas.
