A key challenge in conceptual models for contaminated sites is identification of the multiplicity of processes controlling contaminant concentrations and distribution as well as quantification of the rates at which such processes occur. Conventional protocol for calculating biodegradation rates can lead to overestimation by attributing concentration decreases to degradation alone. This study repor ...

- ... Monitoring natural recovery of contaminated sediments requires the use of techniques that can provide definitive evidence of in situ contaminant degradation. In this study, a passive diffusion sampler, called “peeper”, was combined with Compound Specific Isotope Analysis to determine benzene and monochlorobenzene (MCB) stable carbon isotope values at a fine vertical resolution (3 cm) across the se ...
