      Computer Modeling of Natural Attenuation and Bioremediation Systems

      March 26-28, 2002
      Orlando, Florida

      -----------------------------------------
      COURSE DESCRIPTION

      This three-day course presents instruction and hands-on training in reactive
      transport modeling skills for quantifying the role of natural attenuation
      during site remediation. The course covers the basics of reactive transport
      and natural attenuation, and a discussion of enhanced bioremediation. In
      addition, the course will focus on using computer tools for implementing
      natural attenuation systems. The analytical models BioScreen, BioChlor,
      and ART3D will be discussed and example problems using these codes will be
      solved during hands-on computer sessions. The reactive transport model RT3D
      will also be used for modeling and analysis of different types of
      bioremediation
      systems. The RT3D code is based on the MT3DMS code with new and improved
      solution options. Case studies demonstrating the use of both the RT3D and
      MT3DMS models will be presented. The hands-on computer sessions will include
      step-by-step tutorials illustrating how to develop an RT3D simulation
      using the Groundwater Modeling System (GMS) software. The computer sessions
      will also include a series of case studies where the attendee can apply
      the newly acquired modeling skills to realistic and interesting problems.
      BioScreen, BioChlor, ART3D, and non-GMS versions of RT3D and MT3D will be
      provided free to all attendees. The GMS software will be offered at a
      substantial discount (see below).


      -----------------------------------------
      COURSE OBJECTIVES

      - Develop expertise on evaluating natural attenuation processes at
      contaminated
      sites.
      - Learn to analyze data to allow quantification of rates of contaminant
      transport
      and attenuation.
      - Develop theoretical background and skills to evaluate bioremediation
      system
      design.
      - Simulate natural attenuation at field sites with state-of-the-art ground
      water
      flow and solute transport models.
      - Obtain training on a powerful suite of computer tools for quantifying the
      role
      of natural attenuation, and designing various bioremediation systems.
      - Interact with and learn directly from the authors who developed the tools
      and
      techniques featured in the course.

      and transport problems. His current research interests include development
      of computer tools for active bioremediation systems, modeling natural
      attenuation systems, optimization of remedial designs, application of
      finite-difference and finite-element techniques to environmental transport
      problems, and laboratory-scale visualization of saturated unsaturated flow
      processes. Dr. Clement has published over fifty research publications and
      several computer codes. He is the author of the RT3D and ART3D software, and
      a co-author of the USEPA model, BioChlor.

      Dr. Norm Jones. Dr. Jones is an associate professor in the Department of
      Civil and Environmental Engineering at Brigham Young University. His
      research area is the application of computer graphics and computational
      geometry to ground water modeling. Dr. Jones is the director of the
      Environmental Modeling Research Laboratory at BYU and manages the
      development of the GMS graphical user interface. He teaches numerous
      university courses and ground water modeling short courses. He has also
      published more than 75 technical articles and is the author of the GMS
      Reference Manual.

        Dear Jeff,

        I would very much like to attent the "Computer Modeling of Natural
        Attenuation and Bioremediation Systems" course you organize the end of
        March. It is however nearly impossible for me to get a week off work in that
        period. Are there any plans to organize this course later this year
        (anywhere) ? Thanks for replying.
