This course is intended for geologists involved in Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (LNAPL) assessment and remediation. Roger Lamb, the course presenter, provides information on the development of high resolution conceptual site models that can be used to guarantee the project goals are met. The class will cover advantages of a high resolution LNAPL Conceptual Site Model (LCSM); design and implementation of a high resolution investigation field program; case studies and end uses of a high resolution LCSM.
This course will focus on how to use Membrane Interface Probe sensor results in combination with soil and groundwater analytical results to map the distribution of volatile organic chemical non aqueous phase liquids. Roger Lamb, covers guidelines for using direct sensing tools such as the MIHPT system, best practices for collecting and analyzing soil and groundwater samples, and gives examples from case studies on how to combine direct sensing data with analytical results to estimate NAPL distribution.
Geoscience is an inherently interdisciplinary field of study. Where one geoscientists' research transitions from one field to another is a hard line to draw, and that is why so many organizations are part of the AGI Federation, including organizations like the Soil Science Society of America!
