Isotope fractionation due to diffusion and sorption of chlorinated hydrocarbons and its implications for identifying reactive processes in aquifer - aquitard systems

Wanner, Philipp ; Hunkeler, Daniel (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2016.

Chlorinated hydrocarbons are anthropogenic contaminants, which are known to be possibly carcinogenic to humans. Although the peak production of chlorinated hydrocarbons in the 1970ties was followed by a dramatic decrease in the subsequent decades, chlorinated hydrocarbons are still frequently detected in aquifer systems demonstrating their long-term persistence. When chlorinated hydrocarbons are...

Application of carbon-chlorine isotopic analysis to determine the origin and fate of chlorinated ethenes in groundwater

Badin, Alice ; Hunkeler, Daniel (Dir.) ; Schirmer, Mario (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2015.

Chlorinated ethenes are ubiquitous groundwater contaminants posing a threat to one of our main drinking water sources. Despite their spill history dating back to more than 40 years ago, these contaminants are still found in groundwater in numerous industrially developed countries due to their persistence, difficult characterisation in the subsurface and resulting challenging remediation. When...

Geogenic arsenic in groundwater of Burkina Faso

Bretzler, Anja Maria ; Schirmer, Mario (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

In the semi-arid West African Sahel belt, rural populations often rely on groundwater from fractured aquifer systems for their drinking water needs. Recent evidence has shown that some tube wells in northern Burkina Faso are affected by arsenic (As) concentrations above the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) 10 μg/L guideline value. Arsenic is hypothesised to stem from geogenic (naturally...
