This online course provides an introduction to remedial investigation issues unique to contaminated sediment sites. Specific topics include site characterization goals (and the types of data typically collected during the remedial investigation phase), conceptual site models (CSMs), understanding current and future watershed conditions, identification/control of ongoing contaminant sources, and development of project-specific cleanup goals. The course also introduces considerations related to sediment mobility and contaminant fate and transport, and modeling for contaminated sediment sites.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
