The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Denver Post and Philadelphia Post along with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are hosting a series of webinars based on talks given at recent Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites (DCHWS) Symposiums. The mission of the DCHWS symposiums is to facilitate an interactive engagement between professionals from government and the private sector related to relevant and topical issues affecting applications of engineering and science associated with cleaning up hazardous waste sites. The symposiums also serve as a platform to facilitate the exchange of information, encourage dialogue, share experiences, and build and enhance communication among design and construction professionals.
Sequence stratigraphy has arguably revolutionized stratigraphic analysis in the oil and gas industry since the 1970s, but to date, few environmental companies have utilized this power tool. Although many companies have intended on using sequence stratigraphic correlation techniques to define the subsurface heterogeneity, they have mistakenly used lithostratigraphy, significantly limiting their ability to construct accurate CSMs and develop effective remedial strategies. In this seminar, we will leverage case studies to make participants aware of the pitfalls of lithostratigraphy and highlight the role of sequence stratigraphy in generating robust and realistic hydrogeological models.
