Description

hazardous chemical spillThe Fate and Transport of Contaminants course is designed to provide the student with a working knowledge of the characteristics of a wide range of chemical contaminants, how they are partitioned within the environment and how they interact within the physical environment of the Earth.  This knowledge will be applied to the analysis and evaluation of contaminant transport within various groundwater systems including the soil profile, vadose and saturated zones.  Assessment of multi-phase contaminant reactions and transport processes including gaseous, solute and non-aqueous phase contaminants will be addressed.  Discussion and introduction to various analytical contaminant transport models to predict contaminant degradation and transport will be presented.  The course will conclude with an analysis and evaluation of a contaminant transport investigation from spill site to the final distribution of the contaminant within the environment.
