Contaminated Land Group

Contaminated Land logoThe investigation and management of contaminated land is a multi-disciplinary science bringing together different geological specialisations (e.g. hydrogeology, engineering geology and geochemistry) together with other non-geological professionals (e.g. chemists, toxicologists, engineers).

This puts geoscientists at the forefront of efforts to develop the conceptual site models upon which robust and defensible contaminated land risk assessments depend, and makes the Geological Society the natural home for those specialising in this sector.

The Contaminated Land Group has the following aims:

Early careers

Career pathways and profiles - Contaminated Land

The Geological Society provide information on a career in contaminated land alongside career profiles for contaminated land specialists.  These are available on the main Geological Society website here and as part of the Geological Society's "Discover a Career" video series here.

Early career financial assistance

Each year the Geological Society awards a limited number of professional development bursaries of up to £2,000 to early career geologists, via the Distinguished Geologists Memorial Trust.
