COMMITTEE ON SUBSURFACE CONTAMINATION AT DOE COMPLEX SITES: RESEARCH NEEDS AND OPPORTUNITIES

The objective of this study is to develop a science plan for subsurface contamination research sponsored by DOE’s EM Science Program. This science plan will describe the significant subsurface contamination problems at DOE sites that cannot be addressed with current technologies, identify the knowledge gaps relevant to these problems, and develop a research plan to fill these gaps. This plan will take account of research being sponsored by other federal and state agencies and will identify those areas of research where the EM Science Program can make significant contributions to addressing DOE’s problems and adding to scientific knowledge generally.
