10:30 AM-12:30 PM
This minisymposium addresses optimization techniques and their application in groundwater remediation. The frequency and costs associated with characterization, containment, cleanup, and monitoring are staggering. Optimization methods are being used to reduce costs, health hazards, and risk of design failure. Traditional optimization methods and novel methods are being combined, adapted, and revised because the computational size of environmental remediation problems is so large, yet the observation set is sparse and makes system uncertainty an inescapable fact. All aspects of groundwater remediation design -- ranging from site characterization to reliability analysis -- are considered within the scope of this session.
