Mark Brusseau's research is focused on developing a fundamental understanding of the factors and processes influencing the transport and fate of contaminants in the subsurface. His approach integrates theoretically and experimentally based investigations with the development and use of process-based mathematical models. Specific research interests include: (1) transport of reactive contaminants in heterogeneous porous media; (2) rate-limited inter-phase mass transfer (e.g. diffusion, sorption/desorption, NAPL dissolution); (3) behavior of complex contaminant systems (multi-solute, multi-solvent, multi-phase); (4) coupled processes such as inter-phase mass transfer and biodegradation; (5) vapor-phase transport; (6) colloid transport. Mark is also interested in the development and evaluation of innovative methods for characterization and remediation of subsurface contamination, and the evaluation of risks posed to human health by contamination.
