Workshop 2008

The first Workshop on geophysical measurements at landfills

Malmö, Sweden, November 2008


The first workshop was held in Malmö in November 2008 and gathered 45 participants from 6 countries. In total 18 research works were presented and out of these, 5 presentations were further developed and presented as papers in Waste and Resource Management, Vol 164, February 2011.
