Madeline Schreiber discusses arsenic and groundwater/rock interactions

Dr. Schreiber’s research program at Virginia Tech focuses on chemical hydrogeology. She and her students study the hydrologic and biogeochemical processes that influence the cycling of naturally-occurring and anthropogenic sources of contaminants.

In this video, Dr. Schreiber discusses the relationship between groundwater chemistry and arsenic release. Arsenic can be found in many minerals contained in aquifers but this harmful element does not always contaminate groundwater within the aquifer.
