About this book

The book illustrates the role of large-scale experiments in groundwater and subsurface remediation research. The optimization of existing techniques and the development of new approaches for in-situ remediation of contaminated aquifers and soils is a challenging multidisciplinary task.
The book covers the spectrum from basic process research to technology experiments and numerical systems simulation as well as various aspects of processes for extraction, decomposition and immobilization of contaminants. The authors are internationally leading scientists from key institutions in subsurface remediation research in the USA, Canada, France, The Netherlands and Germany. Fachgebiet: Environmental Engineering Zielgruppe: Research and Development
