Site and Contaminant Characterization
Improved Methods for Characterization of Contaminated Sites Development and field demonstration of improved technologies, methods and strategies for accommodating geologic and contaminant complexities such as contaminant mass distributions in low permeability zones, multiple sources; identification of sampling scales commensurate with the hydrologic complexity; use cores, analyses and borehole testing strategies to achieve cost effectiveness in … Continue reading Site and Contaminant Characterization
Impacts of Contaminants on Off-Site Liability
Impacts of Organic Plumes Discharging to Surface Water Many contaminant plumes are discharging or will ultimately discharge to surface water (rivers, lakes, or wetlands), however little is known about the impacts on the surface water quality or ecosystem. Field studies focus on examining the degradation occurring in the bottom sediment and on the concentrations in … Continue reading Impacts of Contaminants on Off-Site Liability
In situ Technologies for Remediation of Source Zones Development of improved versions and / or understanding of CHEMOX, in situ biothermal technologies, improved understanding of the role of geologic heterogeneity and contaminant mass distribution in low-permeability zones as impediments governing performance of source zone remediation technologies ; development of improved design models for remedial systems … Continue reading Remediation Technologies
