This two-day short course provides the hands-on data analysis techniques required to effectively evaluate natural attenuation at sites with petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, and other contaminants in groundwater, and effectively apply monitored natural attenuation (MNA) as a remediation alternative.
MNA has become widely accepted as a remediation alternative for solute plumes in groundwater. Although many state and federal agencies recognize natural attenuation as a viable remediation approach, this alternative must be supported by sufficient evidence of its effectiveness. The use of MNA requires a sound understanding of natural attenuation mechanisms and their interaction with source and transport processes in order to evaluate the potential efficacy of MNA. Furthermore, a practitioner must be able to accurately quantify natural attenuation in order to make a solid case for MNA as a viable remedial alternative.
Many of the techniques for evaluating natural attenuation were published in the mid-1990s. Although these approaches are still valid, much advancement for evaluating and quantifying natural attenuation has surfaced in recent years. This course stresses the evaluation and quantification of natural attenuation using state-of-the-art techniques. A variety of class exercises designed to enhance your understanding of the material and an opportunity to work with real-world data are integrated into the course.
During this course, you will learn how to:
