American Chemical Society The American Chemical Society (ACS) is a learned society (professional association) based in the United States that supports scientific inquiry in the field of chemistry. Founded in 1876 at New York University, the ACS currently has over 160,000 members at all degree-levels and in

Since 1989, the US Department of Energy has been responsible for managing the environmental cleanup The process of removing solid, liquid, and hazardous wastes, except for unexploded ordnance, resulting from the joint operation of US forces to a condition that approaches the one existing prior to operation as determined by the environmental baseline survey, if one was conducted. of sites and facilities involved in the government's program for developing and producing nuclear weapons. In 1996, it began sponsoring the Environmental Management Science Program, which in turn has funded hundred of scientific research projects intended to address and support the longer-term needs of the cleanup program. A symposium at the Society's March 2003 meeting in New Orleans New Orleans (ôr`lēənz –lənz, ôrlēnz`), city (2006 pop. 187,525), coextensive with Orleans parish, SE La., between the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain, 107 mi (172 km) by water from the river mouth; founded heard reports on the efforts of the Program to develop techniques to remediate subsurface contamination in soil and groundwater. Of the 20 papers delivered, 16 are presented here, covering the science and technology; the characterization, fate, and transport of subsurface contamination; and environmental sensing and monitoring.
