  2. 2. Groundwater impact assessment and protection

    Author : Åse Eliasson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Physically-based groundwater modelling; contamination; flow and solute transport; glaciofluvial deposits; Nybroåsen; Sweden; and multi-criteria decision-aid;

    Abstract : In the recent decades, therehave been frequent conflicts between groundwater waterresources and environmentally hazardous activities. Newmethodologies for aiding decision-making in groundwater impactassessment and protection areneeded and in which issues ofincreased awareness, better understanding of the groundwaterresources processes, and validation of predictive mathematicalmodels are addressed.

  3. 3. Uncertainties in modeling groundwater contamination

    Author : Bruno Mendes; Christian Ekberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : The scientific problem of nuclear waste disposal suffers from stronguncertainties arising both from its object (the system being studied being unknown) and also from its ambitious objectives (prediction of future events and their consequences). This work focuses on identifying, structuring and quantifying the main uncertainties involved in this field. READ MORE

  4. 4. Application of two dimensional compound specific carbon-chlorine isotope analyses for degradation monitoring and assessment of organic pollutants in contaminated soil and groundwater

    Author : Charline Wiegert; Örjan Gustafsson; Thomas Hofstetter; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; organochlorines; chlorinated ethenes; PCE; TCE; hexachlorocyclohexanes; soil contamination; groundwater contamination; remediation; natural attenuation; biodegradation; carbon isotopes; chlorine isotopes; CSIA; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Nearly 250,000 sites with past and present potentially polluting activities need urgent remediation within Europe. Major pollutants include organochlorines (OCls), e.g. chlorinated ethenes (CEs) and hexachlorocyclohexanes (HCHs), mainly used as industrial solvents and pesticides, respectively. READ MORE

  5. 5. Strategic groundwater protection

    Author : Cecilia Scharp; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Groundwater is an undervalued natural resource that isexperiencing a large number of threats to both its quantity andquality. Different types of land-use activities releasepotentially harmful substances that may be transported down tothe groundwater and have a negative impact on its quality. READ MORE
