Abstract: Uncertainty evaluation provides crucial information for soil contamination assessment. However, for remediation planning, uncertainty has to be combined with risk evaluation and subsequent costs. This paper proposes a new model to integrate uncertainty and average remediation costs to define risk target areas for decision making.
