Environmental Services: Optimal Monitoring, Modeling, and Remediation

  • Point- and Non-point Pollution - vadose zone and groundwater migration
  • Hydrogeochemical transport in heterogeneous formations
  • Radionuclide transport (vadose zone and groundwater) and associated risk assessment
  • Virus transport - transport, capture zones, and setback distances
  • Volatile Organic Carbons (VOC) transport and Soil Vapor intrusion   
  • Gas migration from deep gas wells and fracking into shallow freshwater aquifers
  • CO2 Sequestration - complete modeling and risk assessment
  • Acid rock drainage (ARD) - simulations, optimal monitoring, and remediation
  • Soil Salinity Transport (SST) in soils and groundwater, and associated risk assessment 
  • Advanced Risk Assessment and Decision-Making
  • Optimal monitoring network design -- optimal spatial distribution and optimal temporal sampling of soils and groundwater systems
  • Advanced statistical and geostatisticalanalyses, data mining, and other machine learning (AI) tools
  • Numerical Modeling of flow and contaminant transport in porous and fractured rocks, including  

          -  sea water intrusion affected by pumping and injection operations

          -  transport of salt and toxins into the subsurface under different hydrologic conditions and imposed stresses 

          -  multiphase, nonisothermal flow and transport of both organic and inorganic chemicals, including VOC's and 

          -  the complete reactive transport modeling, including complex, dynamic geochemical reactions

  •  Feedback from the modeling and statistical analyses to further optimize monitoring 
  • Feed-forward to  optimize remediation
  • Optimal Remediation of contaminated soils and groundwater - from design to optimal control
  • Advanced inverse modeling to locate contaminant sources
  • Mine Closure optimization (liquid management and control)
