Groundwater Natural Attenuation Calibration Tool
Published by Groundwater Services, Inc.; distributed by ASTM
The new FATE 5 software takes the guess-work out of groundwater modeling by deriving calibrated decay-rate parameters based on actual site data, not literature values.
FATE 5 is an easy-to-use data evaluation tool that calibrates the Domenico analytical groundwater model to actual measured plume concentrations. Decay-rate values from the calibrated model can than be used in the RBCA Spreadsheet System or the BIOSCREEN model to evaluate long-term risks and predict plume attenuation rates.
Special features include:
Built-In Chemical Database -- Contains chemical/toxicological parameters on over 50 chemicals
Plume Stability Condition -- Evaluates plume stability condition (stable vs. expanding) based on comparative steady-state and transient runs of Domenico groundwater mode
Decay-Rate Parameters -- Automatically derives calibrated decay-rate values using iterative runs of Domenico model to match measured plume concentration contours
Plume Attenuation Length -- Calculates distance at which plume concentration will naturally attenuate to cleanup standard Point-and-Click
Graphical Interface -- Includes user-friendly data input and output features
Spreadsheet System -- Runs as Microsoft Excel macro. Easy interface with RBCA Spreadsheet and BIOSCREEN models.
Includes detailed instruction manual and PC diskette.
