Overview

The second edition of Restoration of Contaminated Aquifers: Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Organic Compounds incorporates the latest advances in in-situ remediation and natural attenuation, and maintains the compre hensive, accessible structure that made the first edition a classic. The new edition broadens the scope of the first by examining all forms of hydrocarbon contamination. The authors emphasize the remediation o f Non-aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPLs) and, Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liqui ds (DNAPLs). They also address the growing role of natural attenuation .
