- The Triad Approach: A Catalyst for Maturing Remediation Practice - The Triad approach is well placed to catalyze maturation of the remediation field because it emphasizes 1) a central theme of managing decision uncertainty, 2) unambiguous technical communications, 3) shortened project lifecycles and multidisciplinary interactions that rapidly build professional expertise, and provide feedback to test and perfect programmatic and field practices, and 4) concepts from "softer" sciences (such as economics, cognitive psychology, and decision theory) to capture important human factors. Triad pushes the cleanup industry toward an integrated, practical, second-generation paradigm that can successfully manage the complexities of today's cleanup projects.
