Since 1989, the US Department of Energy has been responsible for managing the environmental cleanup 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 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. Distributed in the US by Oxford University Press.
