E. a factor of approximately 2 for original data. Application of the methodology to other similar situations is mentioned. KEYWORDS 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD); soil contamination assessment; industrial accidents; ICMESA-Seveso. INTRODUCTION Considerable difficulties had to be overcome in assessing environmental contamination in the Seveso area after the ICMESA accident. First, TCDD distribution in the soil was seen to be very uneven and with large differences in TCDD levels among points that were very close.
