New Advances in LNAPL Science

Matrix Solutions, Inc. hosted Midwest GeoSciences Group in Calgary for the 2-day CE course:  Modern Management of Risks at LNAPL Sites.   The March 2019 course was an amazing experience with new mindsets and paradigms shifts about LNAPL Science.
Brilliant minds in class with a technical mastery of LNAPL science and experience.
Thank you to Matrix Solutions, Inc for providing the excellent classroom venue and especially Christine, Dixie, Kim, Diego, and GeoMan Blake from Matrix Solutions, Inc for helping coordinating logistics. 

Instructors Tom Sale and Chuck Newell made special mention how everyone was so friendly and professional...while the participants engagement made the course especially great with meaningful conversations, humor, and relevant experiences that benefited all of us.  It is easy to recognize the expertise among participants along with pride in their work.  We tip our hat to you.

We extend a big thanks to Jeff Simpson at Aquatic Life, Ltd for sponsoring the event along with Colorado State University for administering the continuing education units.

LNAPL Science is rapidly changing now due to recent discoveries related to reactions with different geologic conditions and the LNAPL chemistry at most modern-day sites.   There is no universal model that governs LNAPL because fluid dynamics and chemistry are known now to be site specific and controlled by more than just aquifer/aquitard properties.   Our industry is poised for another gigantic leap too....techniques and tools continue to be developed, and we are finally giving attention to the sole independent variable that drives risk and remediation decisions.

GREAT JOB MATRIX SOLUTIONS, INC. STAFF!!!  Thank you for leading the way.
