Overview of Matrix Diffusion Processes and its Effects on Managing Chlorinated Solvent Sites

The Groundwater Resources Association of California (GRA) is hosting a webinar to provide an overview of matrix diffusion at chlorinated solvent sites, including:

  • basic processes,
  • key research,
  • when it is important,
  • available models, and
  • its effect on remediation.

Several case studies will be presented. Key research work performed by Colorado State University (Dr. Tom Sale), the University of Guelph (Dr. Beth Parker), and others will be highlighted. The webinar assumes a basic understanding of groundwater flow, fate and transport, and groundwater remediation. The webinar is scheduled to be one hour in length for the presentation followed by up to 30 minutes of questions and answers.

The webinar will be lead by Dr. Charles Newell, Vice President of GSI Environmental Inc. Dr. Newell is a member of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers, a NGWA Certified Ground Water Professional, and an Adjunct Professor at Rice University. He has co-authored three EPA publications, five environmental decision support software systems, numerous technical articles, and two books: Natural Attenuation of Fuels and Chlorinated Solvents and Ground Water Contamination: Transport and Remediation.
