Educational courses to teach advanced data analysis, NAPL remediation and more
The National Ground Water Assn. (NGWA) is offering the following short courses:
• "Advanced Data Analysis Techniques for Evaluating and Quantifying Natural Attenuation" will be offered Nov. 9 to 10 in Newark, N.J. The course provides the hands-on data analysis techniques required to effectively evaluate natural attenuation at sites with petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents and other contaminants in groundwater.
• “Understanding Migration, Assessment, and Remediation of Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids” will be offered Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 in Staten Island, N.Y. It is designed to educate participants on the compounds of non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs), their migration characteristics, assessment techniques and remediation technologies.
• “Monitored Natural Attenuation: Mechanisms, Site Characterization, Evaluation, and Monitoring” will be offered Nov. 7 to 8 in Newark, N.J. The course provides the conceptual and technical background necessary to evaluate natural attenuation mechanisms and their interaction with source and transport processes at sites with organic and inorganic chemicals.
• “Environmental Geochemistry of Metals: Investigation and Remediation” will be offered Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 in Salt Lake City. The course provides information needed to effectively evaluate intrinsic remediation and chemical manipulation of sites contaminated with metals, nonmetals and radionuclides.
