This report is one of the GWRTAC (Ground-Water Remediation Technologies Analysis Center) -E- Series of reports, which are developed for GWRTAC to provide a state-of-the-art review of a selected groundwater remediation technology or groundwater topic.
Reference: "E Series: TE-97-01 Remediation of Metals-Contaminated Soils and Groundwater"
The purpose of this paper is to: 1) present a synopsis of physicochemical properties and reactive mechanisms of TCE (Trichloroethylene), and 2) delineate and discuss promising remediation technologies that have been proposed and/or demonstrated for restoring ...

One of the major issues of concern to the Forum is the transport and fate of contaminants in soil and ground water as related to subsurfaceremediation. This paper summarizes the basic concepts of sorption in soil and ground water with emphasis on nonpolar ...
Reference: EPA/EPRI Workshop on Leachate Testing Methods in Houston, Texas, in January 1989.
<p>Through a series of twelve separate geotechnical centrifuge modeling tests, <br />seismic behavior of a zoned earth dam with saturated sandy soil foundation was studied under moderate earthquake conditions. Soil response during and after shaking was monitored ...
