Overview

Several long-term trends in technology evolution have become apparent since these symposia began in 1989. Earlier presenters more frequently discussed treatment methods involving harsh and extensive human inter vention. As the symposia have continued, the number of presentations d escribing extremely harsh and expensive treatment technologies have gr adually been supplanted by more subtle and gentler methods. Such metho ds include subsurface-engineered barriers, phytoremediation, and biore mediation. Nineteen manuscripts were selected for inclusion in this v olume, based upon peer review, scientific merit, the editors' percepti ons of lasting value or innovative features, and the general applicabi lity of either the technology itself or the scientific methods and sch olarly details provided by the authors. General topics include: soil t reatment, groundwater treatment, and radioactive waste treatment.
