Course Description

016-Assessing Environmental Contamination I

This course is intended for engineers, geologist, scientists, and technicians who supervise and conduct environmental field investigations intended to detect, delineate, and remediate contaminated volumes of soil and groundwater. It will be useful to those who are new to such work, but those who are experienced in environmental science should also find the information useful, simply because of the ongoing technical advances in this field.

Dynamic sampling is an investigative strategy that offers the ability to screen contaminant levels in soil and groundwater semi-quantitatively, while still in the field. This strategy virtually eliminates surprises that can occur from the traditional delay in receiving laboratory results. If contaminants are discovered in an area thought to be free of problems, the work plan can be revised dynamically, at the moment.

The membrane interface probe (MIP) is a powerful high-resolution screening tool capable of providing both volatile organic contaminant and soil conductivity data in real time. The MIP provides a real-time vertical log of volatile organic contamination and conductivity with depth. An MIP, used as part of a dynamic sampling strategy, can result in contamination assessments and remediations with significant cost savings, increased time efficiency, and superior outcomes.

Good information and well presented. Perfect for an Environmental Site Assessment that is about to be begin on one of my key projects. I was able to get through the course materials and exam in probably less than 2 hours, even though 4 PDH are given.

I learned a lot about dynamic sampling on site for environmental contamination. Very infomative and very interesting to keep up with pollution testing for development or remediation work. I feel like, I'm more up to speed in this area and could be more helpful in discussions with clients. Well done!
