Abstract DESYRE (DEcision Support sYstem for the REqualification of contaminated sites) is a GIS-based decision support system (DSS) specifically developed to address the integrated management and remediation of contaminated megasites (i.e., large contaminated areas or impacted areas characterized by multiple site owners and multiple stakeholders). In the DESYRE conceptual design and development the main aspects pertaining to a remediation process— analysis of social and economic benefits and… Expand
A spatial decision support system for the Risk-based management of contaminated sites: the DESYRE DSS
In this chapter, the structure and the functionalities of the software DESYRE are presented and the application of the whole system to a case study gives an explanation of the flow of information within the system and the presentation of the outputs. Expand

Specific indices created within the DEcision Support sYstem for REhabilitation of contaminated sites (DESYRE) are presented to document the effectiveness of developed indices in evaluating management solutions and presenting options to decision makers. Expand
Comparison of risk-based decision-support systems for brownfield site rehabilitation: DESYRE and SADA applied to a Romanian case study.
A comparative study between two DSSs, namely SADA (Spatial Analysis and Decision Assistance) and DESYRE (Decision Support System for the Requalification of Contaminated Sites), with the main objective of showing the benefits of using DSSS to introduce and process data and then to disseminate results to different stakeholders involved in the decision-making process.

A decision support tool to prioritize risk management options for contaminated sites.
This work adopted a multi-criteria decision analysis approach and developed a decision support tool (DST) that is viable in decision-making in such a complex situation and adopted the Multi-Attribute Value Theory (MAVT) for data aggregation. Expand
Integrated planning and spatial evaluation of megasite remediation and reuse options.
A framework of assessment methods and models that analyzes and visualizes site- and land use-specific spatial information at the screening level is described to support the derivation of recommendable land use layouts and to initiate further and more detailed planning. Expand
Sustainable remediation : designing a decision support tool for the selection of 'gentle' remediation approaches
A range of tools have been proposed to support decision making in contaminated land remediation (collectively referred to as Decision Support Tools or DSTs). From a European perspective it is clear,Expand
Developing decision support tools for the selection of "gentle" remediation approaches.
It is proposed that decision support which focuses on gentle remediation is more strongly incorporated into existing, well-established (national) decision support tools / decision-frameworks, to promote more widespread use and uptake. Expand

The results confirmed an overall higher potential of exposure to contaminants in the environment and higher mortality rates in the study area for some tumours, but hospital admissions for tumours were generally similar to the regional trend. Expand
A framework and simple decision support tool for groundwater contamination assessment in an urban redevelopment precinct
Overcoming barriers to large-scale urban redevelopment on brownfield land is an essential step in the global drive toward achieving the UN’s sustainable development goals. Arguably the mostExpand
Decision support systems for the management of hazardous materials in aquatic ecosystems
A conceptual framework which is best suited to the management of toxic substances in aquatic ecosystems within Korea is suggested, which may assist stakeholders with their decision making process, and in the achievement of a consensus on water management solutions. Expand


The role of Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis in a DEcision Support sYstem for REhabilitation of contaminated sites (the DESYRE software)
The rehabilitation of contaminated sites involves s veral considerations in terms of environmental, technological and socio-economic aspects. A decisio n upport system becomes therefore necessary inExpand
Decision Support–Oriented Selection of Remediation Technologies to Rehabilitate Contaminated Sites
The proposed methodology appeared suitable to select remediation technologies according to both technical features and requirements of available technologies, as well as site-specific environmental conditions of the site of concern, such as chemical contamination levels and remediation objectives.

Risk based characterisation of contaminated industrial site using multivariate and geostatistical tools.
Kriging interpolation of spatial data and principal component analysis (PCA) proved useful for extracting additional value from the data set and were coupled with the previous hydrogeological characterisation of the site to develop a site-conceptual model for use in the exposure scenario modelling for risk assessment.

Integrating decision tools for the sustainable management of land contamination.
This work critically review recent developments with a view to considering how better decisions can be made by integrating the decision tools available and the issues that arise for practitioners as decision criteria are broadened. Expand
