Uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis of soil pollution & remediation models (QUASPER)¶
(QUAntification des incertitudes et Sensibilité des modèles de Prédiction de l’Epuisement et de Remédiation des sources de pollution)
Duration: 36 months, starting in September 2020.
Models predicting impact duration of soil pollution sources are needed to provide reliable figures to for management and construction planning . However, they are still scarcely used for several reasons: too long delays, too high additional complecity, poor uncertainty management, lack of knowledge of predominating factors.
The QUASPER project aims at securing the use of preditive modelling by:
improvement the understandings of the factors controlling the attenuation of pollution source zones;
indentification of the cases where model simplifications are possible;
systematic quantification of uncertainties.
