Background: The 300 Area of DOE’s Hanford site hosts a field experiment where research results will lead to new cleanup strategies. A multidisciplinary team is evaluating hypotheses related to a uranium plume that resulted from nuclear fuel fabrication from 1943 to 1975. The team will use an innovative monitoring array for experiments on contamination in the vadose zone—the area from the top of the ground surface to the water table, through aquifers, to final discharge to the Columbia River. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory manages the site as part of the Integrated Field-Scale Subsurface Research Challenge sponsored by DOE’s Environmental Remediation Sciences Division. The study enables large interdisciplinary teams to understand and simulate processes affecting contaminant transport. Please creedit Bob Peterson if you use this photo.
