課程概述

Cleaning up the large number of groundwater contamination sites is a significant and complex environmental challenge. The environmental industry is continuously looking for remediation methods that are both effective and cost-efficient. Over the past 10 years there have been amazing, important developments in our understanding of key attenuation processes and technologies for evaluating natural attenuation processes, and a changing institutional perspective on when and where Monitored Natural Attenuation (MNA) may be applied. Despite these advances, restoring groundwater contaminated by anthropogenic sources to allow for unrestricted use continues to be a challenge. Because of a complex mix of physical, chemical, and biological constraints associated with active in-situ cleanup technologies, there has been a long standing focus on understanding natural processes that attenuate groundwater contaminant plumes. We will build upon basic environmental science and environmental engineering principles to discover how to best implement MNA as a viable treatment for groundwater contamination plumes. Additionally we will delve into the history behind and make predictions about the new directions for this technology. Any professional working in the environmental remediation industry will benefit from this in-depth study of MNA. We will use lectures, readings, and computational exercises to enhance our understanding and implementation of MNA. At the completion of this course, students will have updated understanding and practical tools that can be applied to all possible MNA sites....

the course covers all the important details and the lecturers explained it very well. I started from scratch for this course and was not in touch with chemistry and related fields for half a decade.

I recommend it to anyone interested in remediation of contaminated areas, investigation of contaminated sites and remediation techniques in general. The three teachers were able to bring together technical and academic issues in a smooth and fun way (they have a great sense of humor), but without losing the complexity of the focus. It is a course with many current references that can be applied in Brazilian territory. The course dates back to 2016, but remains very current.

The course has provided me with a very up-to-date panorama of the current knowledge and considerations over the evalutaion and application of Monitored Natural Attenuation as a remdial option for contaminated sites. It has also explained and commented on many key processes that are involved in attenuation processes, about which the knowledge for those who are participating in the management of a contaminated site is mandatory. Other than that, Drs. Alvarez, Newell and Adamson showed a very good grasp over the topics discussed, with even a few funny and entertaining conversations along the lectures. Overall, an amazing course.

I`ve taken around dozen of various courses (on different platforms) on environmental engineering/protection/management but this one is by far most up-to-date and best organized. Ok, as a hydrogeologist that`s what I expected from this topic, but lecturers really made a difference. Disregarding their obvious personal heterogeneity, their common trait is charisma and the energy they brought to the course and consequently shared with everyone.

I will definitely recommend this course to every open-minded person, in my area of expertise.

Very interesting and relevant material. Although the examples were primarily in the US technical and regulatory context, the course was nonetheless very informative. I'd thoroughly recommend it for hydrogeologists, geoenvironmental engineers and environmental consultants.

The course has a good content and lectures are very clear and helpful for the learning process. I really like it. The topic is kind of difficult to me, and obviously I didn't catch all the concepts but it will be helpful to me in the future.

Tons of information is what you get from this course. If you are working on or studying groundwater / remediation then you should take this course. Brilliantly done by wonderful staff of GSI and Rice University.

Many thanks to them.
