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...

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...

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...

Similarity Solutions of Starting Jets and Starting Plumes
Similarity solutions of the starting jets and the starting plumes are obtained using a one dimensional model based on the top-hat profiles and the symmetry assumption for the velocity...

Pollutant Transport Modelling in Large River Plumes
The Niagara River plume in Lake Ontario and the Fraser River plume in the Strait of Georgia are of similar spatial dimensions, and arise from rivers with comparable discharge. Both rivers...

Gas Transfer in Diffused Bubble Plumes

From Design to Remediation: The Vroom Site

Statistical Decision Analysis for Interception Wells
In this paper we apply the Bayesian decision analysis to the engineering design of a groundwater interception well whose purpose is to capture a contaminant plume. Two decision variables...

An Experimental Model Using a Graphical User Interface
This paper describes a program named Plume which runs on a microcomputer. The intended function of the program is to enhance an investigator's understanding of the estuarine environment...

Plume Movement and Mixing in Heterogeneous Aquifer

The Enhancement of Air-Sea Gas Exchange by Oceanic Whitecapping
The hypothesis that oceanic whitecaps and the accompanying buoyant bubble plumes greatly enhance the air-sea transfer coefficient of gases subject to liquid phase control has recently...

The Dispersion of Ocean Outfall Plumes: Physical and Biological Dynamics
The discharge of municipal wastewater into the coastal ocean through large ocean outfalls is an important component in managing sewage wastes generated by heavily populated urban areas...

Visualization Studies of Dense Leachate Plumes in Porous Media
In this paper, a series of flow visualization experiments investigating the behavior of dense leachate plumes are described. These experiments were performed in various flow containers...

Buoyant, Miscible Plume in Heterogeneous Aquifer
A three-dimensional, particle tracking scheme is used to compute the trajectory of and spread about the centroid of a mass slug added to steady flow through an infinite aquifer with an...

Concentration Measurements in Dense Leachate Plumes Using a Gamma Radiation System
An automated, nonintrusive technique is discussed that determines salt concentrations in dense leachate plumes. The dense plumes were introduced from a line source into a relatively narrow...

Plume Management for Groundwater Remediation
Site-specific data for four sites were compiled to evaluate the effectiveness of pumping and treating contaminated groundwater and recharging the treated groundwater to the surficial aquifer....

Theoretical Investigation of Oxygenating Bubble Plumes
Rehabilitation of lakes by oxygenation with air or oxygen plumes has been proven to be biologically feasible. Oxygenating plumes are released from areal sources and the gases are absorbed...
