The overarching goal of this research is to enhance knowledge of the effects of thermally altered carbonaceous matter (TACM) on hydrophobic and moderately hydrophobic chemical transport in groundwater. The project will provide the first systematic assessment of the impact of different TACM forms on CFC and SF6 sorption.
