Akyol will participate via Zoom at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 18 from the Kocaeli University, in Turkey. Please contact education@las-cruces.org or call 575/522-3120 for a link to the program or go to Zoom.us with webinar ID 89674825854.
 
Contamination of groundwaters by chlorinated solvents such as trichloroethylene (TCE) is a widespread problem around the world that causes serious threat for human health. Chlorinated solvents enter the subsurface as dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPL) and accumulate in aquifers where the DNAPL is most likely to pool.
 
These pools become a long-term source zone for groundwater contamination. Remediation of DNAPL source zones is crucial for protecting aquifer systems and groundwater potential. Remediation techniques used to remove chlorinated solvents from the subsurface environment include combining chemical oxidation (ISCO) and surfactant enhanced aquifer remediation (SEAR).
 
Nihat Hakan Akyol completed his doctorate degree in Contaminant Hydrogeology at Kocaeli University and is currently working as an Associate Professor at Kocaeli University. He has published numerous publications and supervised projects and graduate students. He has collaborations with the University of Alabama, the University of Arizona, and New Mexico State University.
 
The Museum of Nature & Science is at 411 N. Main St. and is accessible through RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1, Stop 1. For information, visit the City Museums System website at: MUSEUMS | Las Cruces, NM (las-cruces.org) or follow us on Facebook and Instagram @LCMuseums.
