BEST PRACTICES FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SITE MANAGEMENT: A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR APPLYING ENVIRONMENTAL SEQUENCE STRATIGRAPHY TO IMPROVE CONCEPTUAL SITE MODELS
EPA 600-R-17-293, 62 pp, 2017

This issue paper offers a practical guide on the application of the geologic principles of sequence stratigraphy and facies models to the characterization of stratigraphic heterogeneity at hazardous waste sites with the aim of improving CSMs and providing a basis for understanding stratigraphic flux and associated contaminant transport. These principles are fundamental to designing monitoring programs as well as selecting and implementing remedies at contaminated groundwater sites. Appendix A presents six case studies of environmental sequence stratigraphy application. https://semspub.epa.gov/src/document/HQ/100001009
