Environmental Forensics-Site Characterization and Remediation
This 2 day course will provide attendees with a wide array of analytical techniques available to fingerprint a variety of contaminants and to address the basic questions involved in any environmental forensics study:
1. What is the contaminant(s)?
In addition, there will be a discussion of why certain techniques are more appropriate than others, the problems that may be encountered when interpreting results, and what to do if there are no unique answers to some of the above questions. Examples will be provided from a variety of environmental forensic investigations involving a range of contaminants and different issues that have been encountered.
Attendees will learn the range of supporting methods used into order to prepare the strongest case possible when presenting findings.
The final topic will center around site remediation and how some of the techniques used in topics discussed above can also be used to monitor site cleanup, particularly those sites being remediated by natural attenuation.
This course is certified by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for 14 hours of continuing education credit.
This course will provide useful information for chemists, engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, microbiologists, attorneys and regulators that are involved with a variety of environmental issues including contamination characterization and source determination as well as site remediation
