How Many Observation Wells Does it Take to Find a Groundwater Contamination Plume?
A Bayesian data worth framework is developed to balance the benefits and costs of data collection. In addition to Bayesian decision analysis, tools from Monte Carlo simulation, numerical...

Groundwater Remediation at a Superfund Site
Soil and groundwater contamination at the Montana Post & Pole site in Butte, Montana, one of the nation's oldest Superfund sites, has developed into one of the most significant...

Fate/Transport Modeling and Remediation of Contaminated Plume at Vance Airforce Base
Air Training Command (ATC) at Vance Air Force Base (VAFB) is responsible for implementing the Installation Restoration Program (IRP) according to the Comprehensive Environmental Response,...

Modeling Ecological Impacts of Destratification
Artificial destratification has long been advocated as a means of improving water quality in lakes and reservoirs. The results have been varied with examples of both water quality improvement...

Deep-Water Dredged-Material Disposal Monitoring Offshore of San Francisco Using the PLUme Measurement System (PLUMES)

Modeling of Deep Water Outfall Plumes in the East Australian Coastal Ocean
The paper reports on the modeling study of deep water outfall plumes in the east Australian coastal ocean. The primary aims of the modeling were to provide estimates of plume condition...

Smoke Plumes From In Situ Burning of Oil Spills
Mesoscale pool fire experiments with effective diameters up to 17.2 m were conducted to obtain data on the characteristics of burning crude oil on water. These experiments showed that...

A Mathematical Model for Predicting the Motion of Polluting Surface Plumes Due to Drift Currents
The paper analyzes the problem of displacement from the offshore to the nearshore of a polluting surface plume, subject to advection generated by wind-waves and wind-currents. After a...

A Semi Passive Nutrient Injection System for In Situ Bioremediation
A permeable cutoff wall is installed across the path of a contaminant plume. The water in the wall can be amended with the desired nutrient solution using pumping and injecting wells within...

Investigation of Chloroform Plumes in a Porous Media
A sand box model was used in the laboratory to study the development and stability of the contaminant plume with respect to space and time. Steady, uniform flow velocities were established...

Simulation of Buoyant, Miscible Liquid Plumes in Heterogeneous Aquifers
Laboratory experiments have been conducted in a sand tank with a single heterogeneity into which NaNO3 is continuously injected. From samples along, across and over the depth of the tank...

Observations of Artificial Destratification
Artificial destratification using bubble plumes is one means whereby low dissolved oxygen in the hypolimnion of lakes and reservoirs may be averted. Temperature and DO were measured at...

Fluid Mechanics Aspects of Ocean Outfalls
Prediction of the environmental effects of ocean outfalls requires understanding of some complex fluid mechanical phenomena. These include the dynamics of merging plumes in flowing, density-stratified...

Optimal Contaminant Plume Management with US/WELLS
A micro-computer based software package developed at Utah State University for computing optimal pumping strategies for well systems (US/WELLS) is demonstrated. US/WELLS is used to determine...
