Contaminants in Vadose Zone Environments

April 11, 2013 - 12:00pm


The Deep Vadose Zone – Applied Field Research Initiative (DVZ-AFRI) partnered with the Vadose Zone Journal to create a special section of the journal's November 2012 issue.

DVZ-AFRI conducted a symposium at the annual American Chemical Society meeting on “Understanding Behavior and Fate of Contaminants in Vadose Zone Environments.” They produced 12 papers that present novel approaches to characterize, monitor, remediate and predict the transport and fate of contaminants in vadose zone environments, many of which highlight recent work at the Hanford site. The publications can be accessed here.
