Risk e-Learning Web Seminar Series on Analytical Tools and Methods a Big Success

Click the links below to download the archived video podcast for each of the three sessions:

In a spring 2017 three-part Risk e-Learning Web seminar series titled "Analytical Tools and Methods," the Superfund Research Program (SRP) highlighted groundbreaking chemical detection, measurement, and fate and transport modeling techniques developed by grantees. In total, this series attracted 1,209 live participants, 6,543 online archive views, 1,419 audio podcast downloads, and 14,596 video podcast downloads.

The first session, Field-Ready Biosensors to Assess Bioavailability and Toxicity, was held on April 17. Michael Unger, Ph.D., from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, April Gu, Ph.D., from the Northeastern University SRP Center, and Natalia Vasylieva, Ph.D., and Bogdan Barnych, Ph.D., from the University of California, Davis SRP Center described their tools to improve human and environmental monitoring.

The second session on May 22 focused on Techniques for Trace Analysis of Metals and Chemical Mixtures. Bruce Buchholz, Ph.D., from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Tracy Punshon, Ph.D., from the Dartmouth College SRP Center, and Lee Ferguson, Ph.D., from the Duke University SRP Center highlighted practical techniques to measure trace levels of potentially harmful materials and mixtures.

The final session, Fate and Transport of Contaminants, was held on June 12. Keri Hornbuckle, Ph.D., from the University of Iowa SRP Center, Jennifer Guelfo, Ph.D., from the Brown University SRP Center, and Mark Brusseau, Ph.D., from the University of Arizona SRP Center discussed tools and methods to detect contaminants and measure their fate and transport in the environment.

More details and archives of each session are available on the SRP Risk e-Learning series page. Risk e-Learning webinars are conducted by the SRP in collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Land and Emergency Management. The two-hour sessions focus on sharing innovative treatment and site characterization technologies with EPA risk assessors and regional project managers, state and local regulatory agencies, environmental engineering and consulting firms, and academia.
