Poonam Kulkarni co-authors 3 articles published in recent volume of Groundwater Monitoring and Remediation.


Three different articles that featured Poonam Kulkarni as a co-author were published in the Summer 2017 volume of Groundwater Monitoring and Remediation.  The papers that contributed to this notable achievement covered a variety of topics that highlight GSI’s expertise in remediation research:

 1.    “Impact of Temperature on Groundwater Source Attenuation rates at Hydrocarbon Sites”. An evaluation of >2000 sites showed that attenuation rates increased by a factor of 1.1. to 1.6 with every 10°C increase in temperature, and these results were used as evidence for a conceptual model where methanogenesis is a key degradation process at hydrocarbon sites.

2.    “Overview of Natural Source Zone Depletion: Processes, Controlling Factors, and Composition Changes”.  Sanjay Garg at Shell is the lead author of this review article that highlights important advances in understanding NSZD and shows how these processes can be used to cleanup hydrocarbon sites.

3.    “Digital Innovation: The Next Disruptive but Transformative Remediation Frontier”.  This study led by Arcadis examines several ways in which information technology is changing and improving environmental decision-making.

Other co-authors on one or more of these articles included Charles Newell, David King, Tom McHugh, and David Adamson (all GSI), Sanjay Garg (Shell), Maria Irianni Renno, Tom Sale (Colorado State University), John Horst, Nicklaus Welty, Matt Schnobrich, and Prasoon Sinha (all Arcadis)
