We seek a complete framework for adaptive area characterization for purposes of remediation, incorporating both statistical and deterministic features. This hybrid methodology involves deterministic spatial interpolation and adaptive measurement site selection, and statistical uncertainty assessment. Two stop-decision criteria also are proposed, one statistical the other deterministic. The paper contains applications of our methodology to both real and synthetic data sets.
