Application of 3D Visualization Modeling to Improve Conceptual Site Model Development and Groundwater Remediation [PDF]

Developed by Rick Boone and Tim Cushman, OBG

3D visualization modeling can be extremely useful to analyze and present data for environmental assessments, remedial planning, and litigation support, as well as regulatory and public relations. This presentations provides a case study of the successful application of a 3D visualization model, resulting in an improved interpretation of cross-unit vertical communication areas, confirmation of comingling with an offsite CVOC plume, and a refined approach to focused remediation of the core of onsite CVOC plumes, which resulted in cost savings.
