The objectives of the study are to (1) identify and quantify the physical, chemical, and biological processes that affect the transport and fate of chlorinated solvents, particularly trichloroethene (TCE), in the subsurface; (2) determine the relative importance of these processes at the site; and (3) develop predictive models of chlorinated-solvent transport that may have transfer value to other solvent-contaminated sites in similar hydrogeologic environments. This paper reports on the results of work done to identify and quantify the natural processes that introduce and remove TCE to and from the plume at Picatinny Arsenal and to determine which natural TCE-attenuation mechanisms are the most important on a plume-wide basis.
