The scarcity of large parcels of land in well-serviced areas is one motivator for redeveloping industrial or commercial property that is abandoned or underused and often environmentally contaminated – so-called brownfield land. Poor industrial waste disposal practices caused by industrial activities including gas works, factories, railway land and waste tips have contributed to many instances of contaminated land identified as brownfield sites. It is estimated there are between 10,000 and 160,000 brownfield sites in Australia, with Queensland accounting for around 4000 of these.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
