Abstract

Risk based correction action (RBCA) is used to identify appropriate remediation strategies at contaminated sites. Often, RBCA is used to identify reliance on natural attenuation processes, such as dilution, adsorption, and intrinsic biodegradation (IB). In this article, it is shown that the analysis of mineral data can greatly improve the evaluation of IB. Furthermore, a three-step approach is described which can be used to estimate expressed and assimilative IB capacity.
