2019-09-19_-_Title.jpgUpdate on Advanced High-Resolution Site Characterization (HRSC) Technologies for Improved Conceptual Site Models & Remediation Design (9/19/2019) Attendees of this 1-hour presentation will get a good general overview on the (1) current state-of-art in advanced site characterization technologies, (2) how a site should be characterized for remedial design, and (3) the tools available for improving conceptual site models. Included are updates on the newest technologies and recent improvements to older technologies.
Karst Groundwater Investigations (11/12/2015 - Part 1 of 2) Karst landscape/aquifer systems are estimated to covers some 15% of the earth’s ice-free land surface and supply as many as 25% of the world’s population with water resources.  At the same time there are difficult water supply problems both with access, as surface water can be lacking, and quality as what groundwater is available can often be easily contaminated.  Understanding and monitoring karst ground also requires specialized methods. This seminar discusses important methods to study karst groundwater including subsurface flow path mapping, high-resolution flow and water quality monitoring, and introduces concepts of qualitative and quantitative water tracing.
Ground Water Dye Tracing: Applications and Methods (11/12/2015 - Part 2 of 2) Fluorescent dye tracing can be used to study groundwater movement in a variety of applications. In some settings, including but not limited to karst aquifers, this methodology is usually the first step in obtaining information about aquifer characteristics to support monitoring, pollution prevention, and water resource management. This webinar will walk participants through the process of planning and conducting a dye trace, give recommendations on how to avoid common problems, and explain how to interpret tracer test results.
Innovative Technology for In Situ Groundwater Remediation - Plumestop® Liquid Activated Carbon™ (2015-06-18) This presentation demonstrates the efficacy of a colloidal in situ remediation agent that consists of highly sorptive activated carbon particles (1-2 microns in size) stabilized to transport widely through an aquifer upon injection. The stabilized colloids deposit on soil surfaces, forming a biomatrix that traps contaminants and accelerates their degradation. Upon reagent injection, target contaminants partition out of the aqueous phase and into the reagent, thereby removing mobile contaminants from the immediate risk pathway.
Soil Gas Surveys - Making the Invisible Visible (2015-05-14) To accurately design a conceptual site model and streamline your remediation and monitoring program, you must begin with accurate data. Time-integrated passive soil gas (PSG) surveys that utilize accredited GC/MS analytical methods have been demonstrated to provide highly accurate data on sites where volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) are of concern. The resulting high-resolution, high-quality data set identifies source areas, delineates the lateral extent of contamination, and identifies vapor intrusion pathways. The data empowers you to make faster, better-informed decisions about site characterization, risk assessment and remediation design.
