PhD opportunity: Hydrocarbon fate and transport in peat and mosses

University of Waterloo crest

Funds are available to examine the multi-phase interactions of petroleum hydrocarbons in peat soil and mosses. The goal of the research is to establish rates of microbial decomposition and volatilization of hydrocarbons, and their affinity for and transport through highly organic soils characterized by dual porosity. Initially, this will comprise a series of laboratory experiments, but the longer-term goal is to evaluate the nature and remediation options of hydrocarbon spills in peatlands.
