Groundwater is one of the most pervasive environmental problems, and cleaning polluted sites has proven formidable. Remediation efforts are often hindered both by the complexity of the subsurface environment and the difficulty of gathering information on the subsurface. This volume evaluates a selection of new technologies for the remediation of groundwater pollution. It covers techniques for both site remediation and characterization, and many of the techniques described are ready for commercial application. The book emphasizes field tested methods, particularly methods using tracers.

"The 19 papers report the results of field tests of several innovative remediation technologies for cleaning up contamination underground. In addition to the results, they describe the trials and tribulations of conducting the tests themselves and present overview and examples of characterization methods, focusing on tracer-based methods. The topics include surfactant selection criteria, field demonstration studies of surfactant-enhanced solubilization and mobilization at Hill Air Force Base in Utah, designing and performing a field co-solvent flooding test for non-aqueous phase liquid mobilization, assessing the performance of an in-well aeration for remediating an aquifer contaminated by a multi-component immiscible liquid, and investigating partitioning tracers for determining coal tar saturation in soils."--SciTech Book News "The 19 papers report the results of field tests of several innovative remediation technologies for cleaning up contamination underground.
