DNAPL Transport and Fate in the Subsurface

DNAPL Transport and Fate in the Subsurface

Dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs) such as creosote, coal tar, chlorinated solvents and polychlorinated biphenyl oils represent a particular class of soil and groundwater contaminant that exist as a separate liquid phase in the presence of water. DNAPLs come to rest in the subsurface as disconnected blobs and ganglia of liquid referred to as residual DNAPL, and in potentially mobile distributions referred to as pools.

This course provides an overview of the nature of DNAPL contamination and is intended to assist site investigators, site owners and regulators in conducting site investigations, conducting risk assessments and selecting remediation approaches.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 4 PDH credits.
