  • Grand Challenges: Request for Information on the Subsurface

    Subsurface reservoirs account for more than 80% of U.S. primary energy, and they offer vast potential for the storage of energy, CO2, and nuclear waste. Despite decades of development, current technologies do not allow full utilization of subsurface energy resources. Major advances in our understanding of the subsurface environment coupled with the identification and development of potential ...

  • Customer uses Sitelab to test LNAPL to map plume of subsurface oil

    Are you managing petroleum sites with subsurface plumes of non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL) at an oil refinery, fuel storage site, military base or Brownfield site? If so, use Sitelab's oil forensics field screening application for testing NAPLs for their diesel range and gasoline range content. This case study illustrates a one-day site investigation on a 30-acre tank farm site where 40 ...

  • Groundwater movement and contaminant transport in the Earth’s subsurface are the focus of two 2017 Darcy lectures

    Quantifying water movement and contaminant transport in the Earth’s subsurface are the critical issues addressed during presentations offered through the 2017 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture Series in Groundwater Science. Earth’s subsurface is part of the “critical zone” — the layer of the planet from the tops of the trees to the bottom of groundwater. This zone is ...

  • The capillary fringe: monitoring and remediation in this neglected zone

    Much of the capillary fringe is fully-water-saturated but water is held under negative pressure. Dissolved contaminants migrate laterally as under the water table and residual LNAPLs such as gasoline occur in the capillary fringe. This is becoming more significant as ethanol-blended gasoline may be released into the subsurface. The behavior of ethanol fuels in the subsurface will highlight recent ...
