Abstract:

To better equip the groundwater community with accessible, useable, and practical models for evaluating matrix diffusion effects, the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program ESTCP of the U.S. Department of Defense DoD has funded the development of this Matrix Diffusion Toolkit. Based on the Microsoft Excelregistered trademark platform, the Toolkit is an easy-to-use, comprehensive, free software tool that can assist site personnel to effectively and efficiently estimate what effects matrix diffusion will have at their site, and transfer the results to stakeholders. Furthermore, the software can assist project managers in determining if remediation goals are achievable in the short-term. The Toolkit can be applied to virtually any site with heterogeneity in the subsurface, DNAPL, andor where persistent groundwater contaminant concentrations have been observed after source-zone remediation.
