Bioventing is the process of delivering oxygen by forced air movement through organically contaminated unsaturated soils in order to stimulate in situ biodegradation in an otherwise oxygen-limited environment. The paper is a report on progress of two ongoing bioventing field studies involving JP-4 jet fuel contamination. The first investigation, at Eielson AFB near Fairbanks, Alaska, is a study of bioventing in shallow soils and cold climates in conjunction with an evaluation of soil warming techniques. The second study, at Hill AFB near Salt Lake City, Utah, is examining bioventing of large volumes of soil and determining biodegradation and volatilization rates as a function of air injection rate.
