Abstract:

The US Department Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM) determined that uniform application of advanced modeling in the subsurface could potentially help reduce the cost and risk associated with its environmental cleanup mission. In response to this determination, the EM Office of Technology Innovation and Development (OTID), Groundwater and Soil Remediation (GW&S) began the program Advanced Simulation Capability for Environmental Management (ASCEM). ASCEM is a state-of-the-art scientific tool and approach for integrating data and scientific understanding to enable prediction of contaminant fate and transport in natural and engineered systems. This initiative supports the reduction of uncertainties and risks associated with EM's environmental cleanup and closure programs by better understanding and quantifying the subsurface flow and contaminant transport behavior in complex geological systems. This includes the long-term performance of engineered components, including cementitious materials in nuclear waste disposal facilities that may be sources for future contamination of the subsurface. This article describes the ASCEM tools, approach, and reports and ASCEM programmatic accomplishments completed in 2010.
