Management and Remediation of Contaminated Sediments
This workshop provides attendees with management and remediation solutions to contaminants in both marine and freshwater sediments including the effects of remediation on the benthic environment. All aspects of contaminated sediments will be reviewed, including determination of contaminant sources, site characterization, remedial technology selection, monitoring, and demonstration of the effectiveness of remedial technology. Participants will come away from this course with the skills and knowledge to assess and remediate contaminated sediments with a scientifically valid and legally defensible plan at minimum cost.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
Distinguish sources and types of contaminants at sites
Determine fate and transport of contaminants
Understand current remediation strategies and new approaches
Assess remediation effectiveness: defining, monitoring, and demonstrating success
Apply chemical/toxicological/biological measurements to characterize the site before/after remediation
Understand the selection of remedial technology
Understand remedial technology deployment methods
Apply novel, improved tools and techniques for site-specific assessment of contaminants before/after remediation
