Course Review:

Karen will discuss state-of-the-art strategies to enhance natural biochemical and geochemical processes for groundwater protection and remediation. The Biogeochemical Toolbox is designed to improve your understanding of the fundamental redox processes that help nature deal with common organic and inorganic contaminants in the environment. The Toolbox will help you:

  • Identify groundwater biogeochemical processes;
  • Enhance your vocabulary for investigating and discussing such processes; and,
  • Overall be better equipped to ask the right questions about pollutant behavior in groundwater ecosystems.

After the lecture, we will break into smaller groups and discuss several case studies where enhancing natural attenuation processes can accelerate site remediation and save clients’ money.

Seminar Agenda:

  • 5:30-6:30 PM: Biogeochemical Toolbox presentation
  • 6:30-7:30 PM: Discussions
