The relationship between contaminants and potential biological impact is challenging to evaluate on contaminated sites - GSI has the tools and the experience to address your needs.
The “measurement” of biological response to the presence of a contaminant or reduction in water quality is challenging. At GSI we work toward quantitative impact assessments that provide clarity, utilizes appropriate biological metrics, and are properly contextualized with the physics and chemistry governing environmental processes on the site. This grounds the assessment into a conceptual site model and provides a robust framework onto which we align our quantitative evaluation – be it for surface water dwelling organisms or benthic triad assessments.
