ENVS 565 - Contaminant Transport in Porous Media

Description
This course examines the transport and fate of contaminants in other constituents in the subsurface environment (including the vadose zone and groundwater systems). The emphasis is on developing a thorough understanding of the critical processes and factors that influence transport and fate, including advection, dispersion, interphase mass transfer, transformation reactions, and physical and biogeochemical heterogeneity of porous media. Topics covered include aqueous (dissolved) constituents, nanoparticles and colloids in multi-phase systems (admissible liquids, vapor). Class Notes: **Course Requisites: ENVS 570 or HWRS 518 or HWRS 531.
