Hydrogeology at Hanford
Hydrogeology at Hanford (Number of pages: 2) (Publication Size: 142KB)
|Description||Hydrogeologists at Hanford have many opportunities. The geology here has unique features such as flood basalts and the Missoula floods. The work here is important and challenging: selecting and designing corrective measures to prevent radioactive and chemical contamination from reaching the groundwater and the Columbia River. Hydrogeologists at Hanford must have not only technical skills in hydrology, geology, math, physics, and fluid mechanics. They also must have skills in collaboration and communication to work with the agencies and public groups whose input are vital to protect the environment here.|
