The American Geophysical Union 2019 Fall Meeting was the largest Earth and space science gathering in the world, held December 9 to 13, 2019, in San Francisco. The University of Arizona Superfund Research Program (UA SRP) was well represented at the Fall Meeting, where several investigators and trainees had the opportunity to participate in oral presentations, poster sessions and other activities.

Other presenters from UA SRP were:
Dr. Mark Brusseau, UA SRP PI, presenting “PFAS Transport in Porous Media with Multi-process Retention.”
Lydia L. Jennings, a Ph.D. candidate mentored by Dr. Raina Maier, presenting “Biogeophysical Soil Constituents Associated with Revegetation Success of Reclaimed Mine Tailings in Southern Arizona.”
Sarah Van Glubt, a Ph.D. candidate mentored by Dr. Mark Brusseau, presenting “Impact of PFAS Adsorption to NAPL-Water Interfaces on PFAS Retention and NAPL Mobilization.”
