Ground Water Seepage and Toxicity Assessment

Inventor: Matt Charette
Serial #: PCT/US2008/010617

Applications: System to sample, measure and analyze ground water seepage and seepage rates. GSM applications include the location of fresh water aquifers, determination and monitoring of ground water toxins and the validation of ground water remediation efforts.  The technology has utility for local and federal regulatory agencies, researchers and consultants.

Technology: Automated groundwater seepage meter (GSM) with integrated spectrophotometer for sampling and analyzing both submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) and sea-water.  GSM produces high-resolution time-series data from tracer-dilution.
