About this book

Billions of dollars are spent annually on surface and groundwater remediation, generating a demand by the public and government for effective modeling of contaminant fate and transport, with the hope that accurate models will result in the effective application of remediation efforts-and an efficient distribution of remediation dollars. Contaminated Ground Water and Sediment: Modeling for Management and Remediation is the documented result of a workshop, Modeling and Management of Emerging Environmental Issues, held at Penn State University. This event assembled four panels of modeling experts from the U.S. and Canada to discuss modeling technology development and application, in order to promote sound and cost-effective environmental decision-making. Each of the book's chapters addresses one of the four critical issues discussed at the workshop: discharge of contaminated ground water into surface water bodies; fate and transport of contaminated sediment; optimization modeling for remediation and monitoring; and simulation of halogenated subsurface hydrocarbons. All of these issues involve technical or regulatory challenges and significant financial costs. This thorough analysis provides an overview on the state of the art in current practice and identifies emerging research and development trends within modeling technology. Each of the discussions considers not only technical issues, but regulatory and cost factors as well.
