PLUMESEEKER AND PBMO TECHNOLOGIES FOR OPTIMIZATION OF SITE CHARACTERIZATION AND REMEDIATION
Guvanasen, V. and L.M. Deschaine. | Interagency Steering Committee on the Performance & Risk Assessment Community of Practice (P&RA CoP) Webinar, 27 slides, 17 Jan 2019

An overview of the PlumeSeeker and Physics-Based Management Optimization (PBMO) technologies were presented in this webinar. PlumeSeeker integrates site hydrogeology, geostatistics, contaminant fate and transport, and operational history to conduct stochastic simulations to identify plausible plume configurations, increase confidence in plume delineation, evaluate existing well networks, and determine optimal new well locations. PBMO is an efficient computational optimization technology used for managing environmental remediation projects and programs by reducing remediation design analysis timeframes and costs. The talk includes case studies where the technologies were used to assist site characterization and remediation. https://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2019/01/f58/PlumeSeekerPBMO_DOE-Webinar-20190117.pdf
