Technical Briefing Webinar (Ground Gases): Practical application of advanced methods of analysis of continuous gas monitoring data (1.25 hours)

Recording Available Here

High frequency (‘continuous’) gas and environmental monitoring data has been possible since the late 1990s. The real value has only been fully realised in the past few years with the advent of continuous flow monitoring and combining the data with meteorological information. Such data can be invaluable in completing risk assessments when used in conjunction with a robust gas conceptual site model (gCSM). It allows a more robust assessment of whether gas mitigation measures are required and if they are it can minimise the scope. However, the analysis and interpretation of continuous data is often basic and does not maximise the value in the data.

This Technical Briefing Webinar, hosted by LQM, will be delivered by Steve Wilson who is Technical Director of the Environmental Protection Group (EPG) Limited and board member of Ambisense Ltd. Steve has authored numerous technical papers and publications and provided training relating to gassing issues over many years.

Steve will share his insights into the practical application of advanced methods of analysis of continuous gas monitoring data drawing on EPG’s extensive experience of using such data since the late 1990s and Ambisense’s use of data science techniques. Using the right approaches allows otherwise non-systematic variation in relationships between concentrations and its environmental drivers to be converted into an understanding of processes controlling gas concentration. 

Following the webinar you will be supplied with a webinar recording and copy of the slides.

This webinar (BST 1315-1430) will cover:

  • what continuous monitoring data can you use
  • when should you be using continuous monitoring data
  • what methods of analysis can be used for continuous data
  • practical examples of using continuous data

At the end of the webinar, you will:

  • improve confidence in prediction of "worst case concentration" and "worst case scenario" using continuous gas data at your sites
  • understand on what sites to use continuous gas data
  • understand advanced methods of analysis of continuous gas data
  • know where to look for further information

This webinar is mainly relevant to regulators (including local authority staff) and consultants involved with the redevelopment of sites where ground gases are likely to be an issue.

It will be particularly relevant to anyone looking to:

  • - monitor and assess ground gases and vapours at development or existing sites
  • - review or regulate ground gases issues at site
