A Great Success: the 2007 US EPA-UA SBRP Seminar series

On December 13, 2007 UA SBRP PI, Dr. Mark L. Brusseau presented a seminar entitled: “Characterizing Mass Transfer and Mass Flux for DNAPL Source Zones”. A total of 15 US EPA Remedial Project Managers and Consultants participated in the “Live at Region 9” seminar at the US EPA Region 9 headquarters in San Francisco.

On February 5th, Dr. Brusseau conducted the web version of his seminar via the US EPA Technology Innovation Program’s Clu-In website, sponsored by NIEHS.  Over 220 individuals from around the world participated.  Click here for more information regarding this web seminar.

The EPA-UA SBRP Seminar Series is the result of ongoing collaborative efforts between EPA Region 9 Superfund and Technology Liaison, Mike Gill, and UA SBRP Research Translation Coordinator, Monica Ramirez. After discussing and delineating the scientific needs of the Regional Project Managers, and the research strengths of the UA SBRP, Mike Gill and Monica Ramirez designed a first-of-its-kind information transfer series. Below is a summary of the 2007 EPA-UA SBRP Seminar Series.
