This course provides an outlook of the international and domestic laws and regulations applicable to transboundary movements of hazardous waste and hazardous recyclable materials across North America.
Many of the training sessions offered are geared toward professional audiences involved in site cleanup. While some courses are open to the public as part of a broad spectrum of environmental education, many training opportunities are reserved specifically for federal and state regulators.
This open course curriculum focuses on the geotechnical aspects of hazardous waste management, with specific emphasis on the design of land-based waste containment structures and hazardous waste remediation.
This U.S. EPA website contains information on the modeling of subsurface transport of petroleum hydrocarbons and other contaminants. There are a few course modules on the fate and transport of contaminants. There are also OnSite on-line calculators for site-specific assessment calculations.
Cleanup! is an educational software package that allows students to learn about hazardous waste site characterization and remediation. The software models a contamination scenario that students can experiment with and find solutions to the contamination problem.
EERL's mission is to be the best possible online collection of environmental and energy sustainability resources for community college educators and for their students. The resources are also available for practitioners and the public.
