NGWA offers course, 'Applications of Groundwater Geochemistry'

The National Ground Water Association is offering the course, “Applications of Groundwater Geochemistry,” September 13-14 in San Antonio, Texas.

A basic understanding of geochemical concepts is a good start, but knowing how contaminants will behave in a variety of geochemical settings is vital in conducting site assessments or designing an effective remediation project.

This course examines conditions resulting from groundwater and aquifer/soil interactions, and the effects of introducing a variety of contaminants. Presented case studies explain data collection requirements, laboratory analytical methods, and interpretation of data. Class exercises reinforce concepts presented in the lectures.  

In this course, attendees will learn about:
  • Groundwater characterization
  • Mobility of organic and inorganic contaminants
  • Redox chemistry of organic compounds
  • Principles of remediation
  • Intrinsic remediation of inorganics
  • Geochemistry of organic remediation
  • How different geochemical conditions will affect contamination and influence remediation decisions.

This intermediate-level course is best suited to:

  • Geologists
  • Engineers
  • Project managers
  • Environmental professionals involved in risk assessment and remediation
  • Regulators
  • Attorneys.

Attendees should possess a basic understanding of groundwater geochemistry as covered in the 'NGWA Fundamentals of Groundwater Geochemistry' short course (description located under “Custom training” under the “Events/Education” menu tab above). Two semesters of undergraduate chemistry and a degree in Earth sciences or engineering are recommended; you may also want to review a college-level chemistry text prior to attending.

The course instructors are Bill Deutsch, senior geochemist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory operated by Battelle, and Patrick Longmire, Ph.D., hydrogeochemist at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

NGWA, a nonprofit organization comprised of more than 13,000 U.S. and international groundwater professionals—contractors, equipment manufacturers, suppliers, scientists, and engineers—is dedicated to advancing groundwater knowledge. NGWA’s vision is to be the leading groundwater association that advocates the responsible development, management, and use of water.
