Development of Radon-222 as a Natural Tracer for Monitoring the Remediation of NAPL Contamination in the Subsurface.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objective of this research is to develop a unique method for using naturally occurring radon-222 as an inexpensive partitioning tracer for locating and quantitatifying nonaqueous phase liquid (NAPL) contamination in the subsurface, and assessing the effectiveness of NAPL remediation. Laboratory, field, and modeling studies are being performed to evaluate this technique, and to develop methods for its successful implementation in practice.
