Title: DNAPL site characterization: The evolving conceptual model and toolbox approach

Abstract

In natural subsurface systems dominated by heterogeneity, the delineation and even the detection of sparingly soluble, dense contaminants can be extremely difficult. The performance assessment of cleanup at these sites is therefore more complex. Several technologies for the characterization of sites contaminated with dense non aqueous phase liquids have recently been developed. These include geophysical techniques, tracer tests, and direct sampling or sensing methods.
