Environmental Health - Toxic Substances Hydrology Program
New methods and tools are developed and used to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of collecting and interpreting environmental data; measuring and modeling the processes affecting contaminant occurrence, transport, and fate; evaluating the potential implications of existing contamination; and designing management and remediation alternatives.
Measuring contaminant occurrence, quantifying transport processes, and evaluating management and remediation alternatives.
Developing new laboratory methods for measuring contaminants of emerging concern in various environmental media.
Developing and applying simulation and statistical models to enhance environmental data collection and interpretation, and management decisions.
Characterizing and monitoring environmental properties that affect contaminant migration using non-invasive methods.
Using natural or introduced tracers to identify and quantify the processes that affect contaminant transport and fate in the environment.
Evaluating natural attenuation or engineered remediation alternatives designing remediation-performance monitoring.
