Environmental Dynamics and Exposure Pathways of Subsurface Contaminants - Part 2

Board Meeting
Topics:
April 12, 2018 - April 13, 2018

Location: National Academy of Sciences Building
2101 Constitution Ave NW Washington DC 20418

This session will focus on approaches for characterizing exposure pathways of subsurface contaminants to humans and ecosystems. The session also will seek to identify key information needs to improve risk assessments and risk management decisions. The latest research on uptake of subsurface contaminants by flora and fauna will be explored. Specific case examples will be discussed that illustrate the kinds of risk management decisions that rely upon a thorough characterization of exposure pathways.
