The Reston Biogeochemical Processes in Groundwater Laboratory (RBPGL) research team conducts long-term investigations on the fate and geochemical effects of organic contaminants in surface and subsurface environments. Our approach combines field observations and laboratory experiments to determine how transformations of organic contaminants impact aquifer, soil, and surface-water chemistry, targeting transformations with potential ecological and health impacts.
We conduct long-term investigations on the fate and geochemical effects of organic and inorganic chemicals in water and soil, caused by releases of anthropogenic contaminants into the environment.
We have a broad range of analytical research capabilities and offer analytical services in aqueous samples for non-volatile dissolved organic carbon and low molecular weight organic acids.
