Fate and Transport of Hydrocarbons: Contamination and Its Relationship to Our Lives
Event Information:
Fate and Transport of Hydrocarbons: Contamination and Its Relationship to Our Lives


Date and Time:
6/13/2018 at 3:00 PM, Duration: 45 Minutes


Description:

Contaminant transport & fate refers to the physical, chemical, and biological processes that impact the movement of the contaminants from point A to point B and how these contaminants may be altered while they are transported. Groundwater contamination caused by petroleum hydrocarbon (PHC) spills is a major environmental concern worldwide. However, infiltration into groundwater is decreasing due to the natural attenuation processes of PHCs in the vadose zone, which acts as a safeguard of invaluable groundwater resource against contamination. In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Fate and Transport of general contaminants
  • Properties of Fate and Transport
  • What are Hydrocarbons?
  • Sources of Hydrocarbon Contamination
  • Why do we care?
  • Bringing it together: How Fate and Transport relates to hydrocarbons in the subsurface
