This seminar will feature SRP grantees Dr. Upal Ghosh (Associate Professor and Graduate Program Director at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Maryland Baltimore County) and Dr. Joel Burken (Professor of Civil, Architectural & Environmental Engineering and Interim Director of the Environmental Research Center). Dr. Ghosh will present an overview of ongoing research on activated carbon amendments to reduce contaminant bioavailability in sediments. This in-situ technique binds toxic chemicals in sediments and reduces their exposure to the aquatic food web. Dr. Burken will present his research using a traditionally high pressure waterjet in a new and innovative manner to inject remediation amendments like powdered activated carbon at varying depths in contaminated sediments. This method also decreases contaminant bioavailability, minimizes resuspension and the impact on benthic communities.
