Processes controlling the behavior of LNAPLs at groundwater surface water interfaces
Releases of Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (LNAPLs) are a significant problem at many sites. This thesis explored governing processes pertaining to LNAPL releases at groundwater surface water interfaces (GSIs). Governing processes were investigated via laboratory studies and a preliminary analysis of forces controlling LNAPL occurrence in unsaturated media. A total of six laboratory sand tank experiments were conducted using novel applications of fluorescing dyes. The results of these experiments provide unique insights regarding LNAPL behavior in porous media. Key insights include: * ...
