TUESDAY AFTERNOON CONCURRENT TECHNICAL SESSIONS

Tuesday Afternoon Concurrent Sessions
Sessions 1A, 1B, and 1C took place Tuesday afternoon.

SESSION 1A

Topic:  Groundwater Remediation: Engineering In-Situ Delivery and Treatment
Chair:
  Dr. Perry McCarty, Stanford University / Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Keynote:  Dr. Peter Kitanidis, Stanford University / Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

The existence of low permeability or complex hydrogeologic settings makes the delivery of in-situ treatment amendments to the subsurface difficult. The primary challenge becomes bringing the contaminants into contact with the appropriate amendments and ensuring control of amendment reactivity. This session will highlight our current understanding of the issues and efforts associated with the delivery, emplacement, and mixing of injected amendments necessary to enhance the remediation of contaminated groundwater.

SESSION 1B

Topic:  Sustainable Forest Management on DoD Lands
Chair:  Dr. Lindsay Boring, Joseph W. Jones Ecological Research Center
Keynote:  Dr. Jerry Franklin, University of Washington/College of Forest Resources

Sustainable, or ecological, forest management can encompass the ecological use of fire as a management tool in fire adapted ecosystems, continuous forest or uneven-aged silvicultural practices, and whole system thinking. Although timber harvesting may be one of several key management tools, maximization of timber revenues is not the emphasis. Given DoD’s emphasis on the use of its forest management practices to focus on mission support and the stewardship of forested ecosystems, it has the potential to become a leader in the practice of sustainable forest management. This session will examine the underlying science and management questions associated with the practice of sustainable forest management.
