Reston Biogeochemical Processes in Groundwater Laboratory

About

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 Focus

Our Focus

The RBPGL focuses on understanding how transformations of organic anthropogenic contaminants impact aquifer, soil, and surface-water chemistry, targeting transformations with potential ecological and health impacts.

Our Studies

Our Studies

We primarily study the influence of contaminant transformation processes on aquifer, soil, wetland, and surface water chemistry.

Our Contributions

Our Contributions

Our contributions enhance the understanding of contaminant transformation processes and provide a basis for resources managers to make science-based decisions when developing effective remediation strategies and preventing further contamination.
