  • Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

    Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters. Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters provides a quantitative understanding of the transport of sediments and hydrophobic contaminants. With an emphasis on fine-grained, cohesive sediments and mixtures of fine-grained and ...

  • Permeability and Groundwater Contaminant Transport

    Problems faced by geotechnical engineers and geologists who are currently involved in ground water seepage analysis and evaluation of contaminant transport problems are covered in the publication. Permeability-hydraulic conductivity-is only one of the many parameters required to predict groundwater contaminant ...

  • Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

    Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters throughout the United States as well as in many other parts of the world. Even after elimination of the primary contaminant sources, these bottom sediments will be a main source of contaminants for many years to come. In order to ...

  • Stabilization and Solidification of Hazardous, Radioactive, and Mixed Wastes

    The development of stabilization and solidification techniques in the field of waste treatment reflects the efforts to better protect human health and the environment with modern advances in materials and technology. Stabilization and Solidification of Hazardous, Radioactive, and Mixed Wastes provides comprehensive information including case ...

  • Diffusion in Natural Porous Media

    Diffusion in Natural Porous Media: Contaminant Transport, Sorption/Desorption and Dissolution Kinetics introduces the general principles of diffusion in the subsurface environment and discusses the implications for the fate and transport of contaminants in soils and groundwater. Emphasis is placed on sorption/desorption and the dissolution ...

  • Handbook of Groundwater Engineering

    This handbook concerns the general field of groundwater from an engineering perspective. It covers the several disciplines concerned with the design and control of flow and contaminant transport in groundwater. Each chapter is authored by a specialist in the topic treated, and special care has been taken to keep the literature up-to-date with ...

  • Hydraulic Conductivity and Waste Contaminant Transport in Soil

    Interest in hydraulic conductivity of soils and waste contaminant transport has increased substantially in recent years, largely due to environmental concerns. Assessments of potential contamination at a site are possible only if accurate information is available concerning the hydraulic conductivity of subsoils. STP 1142 provides this ...

  • Flocculation in Natural and Engineered Environmental Systems

    Flocculation is a dominant process in aquatic environments, fundamental to water and wastewater treatment systems. Environmental and economic consequences of flocculation include sedimentation and contaminant transport, which can bring about habitat destructions and affect human health via deterioration of source waters. Understanding the ...

  • Modeling Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport

    In many parts of the world, groundwater resources are under increasing threat from growing demands, wasteful use, and contamination. To face the challenge, good planning and management practices are needed. A key to the management of groundwater is the ability to model the movement of fluids and contaminants in the subsurface. The purpose of this ...

  • Experimental Unsaturated Soil Mechanics

    These proceedings are a continuation of the series of International Conferences in Germany entitled 'Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils.' The primary objective is to discuss and understand unsaturated soil behaviour such that engineered activities are made better with times in terms of judgement and quality. We all realise by now that in addition to ...

  • Theoretical and Numerical Unsaturated Soil Mechanics

    These proceedings are a continuation of the series of International Conferences in Germany entitled 'Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils.' The primary objective is to discuss and understand unsaturated soil behaviour such that engineered activities are made better with times in terms of judgement and quality. We all realise by now that in addition to ...

  • Computational Subsurface Hydrology

    Any numerical subsurface model is comprised of three components: a theoretical basis to translate our understanding phenomena into partial differential equations and boundary conditions, a numerical method to approximate these governing equations and implement the boundary conditions, and a computer implementation to generate a generic code ...

  • Quasi 3D Modeling Flow and Contaminant Transport in Shallow Waters --- Using Multiple Depth-Averaged Two-Equation Closure Turbulence Models, CFD Software

    The ‘standard’ two-equation turbulence models, used widely in industry, cannot be directly used in depth-averaged modeling. Till now, the vast majority of quasi 3D numerical tools just can provide one depth-averaged 2-eq. k-ε model for modeling side-charge problem on single-level grid. Due to the absence of one ...

  • Fractures and Fracture Networks

    This monograph on Fractures and Fracture Networks provides a systematic treatment of their geometrical and transport properties. Emphasis is put on the statistical analysis of complex three-dimensional structures and on the development of numerical tools to solve transport equations in real structures. The book is divided into four parts. ...

  • Wastewater Treatment: Occurrence and Fate of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)

    This book describes the sources of water contamination by PAHs and their transportation and fate in natural aquatic systems. It then discusses, from the analytical chemist’s view, how to determine the presence of PAHs in water and wastewater, and the changes in PAH concentration during treatment processes. The text examines the removal of PAHs ...

  • Groundwater Optimization Handbook

    Presents a thorough introduction to groundwater systems analysis and optimization terminology, principles, and techniques Identifies which S-O approaches are appropriate for different types of groundwater quantity (hydraulic optimization) and quality (contaminant transport optimization) problems, whether they be deterministic, stochastic, ...

  • Arctic Alpine Ecosystems and People in a Changing Environment

    The European Arctic and Alpine regions are experiencing large environmental changes. Increased temperatures and precipitation, reduction in sea ice and glacier ice, the increased level of UV-radiation and the long-range transported contaminants are challenging new stress factors for both terrestrial and aquatic organisms. The large annual ...

  • CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS: Characterization, Evaluation, Mitigation/Restoration, and Management Strategy Performance
