Geosyntec will co-present a Short Course entitled "Passive Sampling of Hydrophobic Organic Compounds at Sediment Sites: Practical Advice for Decision-Makers and End-Users" at the Ninth International Conference on Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments in New Orleans, Louisiana from 1:00-5:00pm on January 9, 2017.
- Jason Conder, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, Geosyntec Consultants
- Upal Ghosh, Ph.D., Professor, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
- Matt Lambert, M.S., Environmental Scientist, United States Environmental Protection Agency
- Matt Vanderkooy, M.S., Environmental Scientist, Geosyntec Consultants
Passive sampling is quickly becoming the primary approach for measuring the availability of hydrophobic organic compounds in sediments, and is being applied to questions regarding risk, fate, and remedy effectiveness at a variety of contaminated sediment sites.
The goal of this course is to provide consultants, regulators, and stakeholders with the basic tools and concepts they need to apply passive samplers in the decision making process at sediment sites.
Practical topics of the course include:
- Technical Introduction to Passive Sampling
- Decision-making Applications
- Logistics (Preparation/Procurement, Deployment, and Chemical Analysis)
- Data Analysis and Communication
- Regulatory and Policy Perspectives
- Research Frontiers
