Programa de Estudos

  • Week 1 - Course Overview and MNA as an Evolving Technology
    Welcome to the course! In the Course Overview section, you will find general information about the course as well as instructions on how to navigate the course. In the lectures for this week, we will start with history. We look at a general brief history of gr...
  • Week 2 - Biodegradation Principles
    In this series of lectures, we will learn when biodegradation can or cannot occur and what conditions are conducive to faster degradation.
  • Week 3 - Abiotic Degradation Principles
    In this series of lectures, we will focus on the principles of abiotic degradation and discuss how these processes support monitored natural attenuation. You will be learning about the key reactions and minerals that are involved in abiotic degradation. We wil...
  • Week 4 - Attenuation and Storage in Low K Zones
    In these lectures, we will focus on the idea that storage of contaminants in geologic media as a potential natural attenuation mechanism. Under this scenario, certain contaminants diffuse in low permeability media such as silt, clay, and limestone and then ev...
  • Week 5 - Dilution as an Attenuation Process - Sometimes
    In this series of lectures, we will discuss how dilution is an attenuation process – sometimes. We start with the basics, and review groundwater flow and one of the “top ten things” that every hydrogeologist should know: the distinction between Darcy Velocity...
  • Week 6 - Better Technologies: Compound Specific Isotopes & Molecular Biological Tools
    In this series of lectures, we will focus on several established and emerging methods for demonstrating that biological and other attenuation processes are occurring. We will start with an overview on lines of evidence for biological degradation processes, an...
  • Week 7 - Monitoring for MNA
    In this series of lectures, we will discuss how you should perform the monitoring that is such an important part of monitored natural attenuation (after all, it’s right there in the title!). We start off with a discussion of how data are collected, including ...
  • Week 8 - Modeling Tools to Support MNA
    In this series of lectures, we talk about models and how they can be used to understand MNA. We first start with two key MNA questions: How Long? (will the plume get) and How Far? (how long until the site is clean). Then a review of analytical computer mode...
  • Week 9 - New Directions for MNA
    This final series of lectures will cover a mélange of interesting MNA topicsl We start with the brand new ESTCP BIOPIC tool, then talk about the broad universe of MNA that extends to a lot of different contaminant classes. Then some new developments in the L...
