Bernard H. Kueper, Ph.D., P.Eng.

Profile

Professor Kueper and his graduate students perform research focused on the subsurface behaviour and remediation of non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs) such as chlorinated solvents, coal tar, creosote, PCB oils and gasoline in both unconsolidated deposits such as sands and gravels, as well as fractured clay and rock. These compounds currently represent the most frequently detected groundwater contaminants throughout industrialized areas of the world. Current research is aimed at the development and evaluation of in-situ remediation technologies such as hydraulic displacement (HD), electrical resistance heating (ERH), thermal conductive heating (TCH), enhanced in-situ bioremediation (EISB), and in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO).

Professor Kueper is a popular short-course instructor who has lectured on the topic of DNAPL and LNAPL migration and remediation in courses held in Switzerland, Australia, Denmark, England, the United States, Brazil and Canada. He is a former Associate Editor of the Journal of Ground Water, the Journal of Contaminant Hydrology and the Canadian Geotechnical Journal. Dr. Kueper is the lead editor of the recently completed textbook Chlorinated Solvent Source Zone Remediation, published by Springer Science + Business Media, LLC, New York.

Research Interests

Groundwater Research Group @ Queen's

Professor Kueper and his graduate students perform research focused on the subsurface behaviour and remediation of non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPLs) such as chlorinated solvents, coal tar, creosote, PCB oils and gasoline in both unconsolidated deposits such as sands and gravels, as well as fractured clay and rock. These compounds currently represent the most frequently detected groundwater contaminants throughout industrialized areas of the world. Current research is aimed at the development and evaluation of in-situ remediation technologies such as hydraulic displacement (HD), electrical resistance heating (ERH), thermal conductive heating (TCH), enhanced in-situ bioremediation (EISB), and in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO).  Professor Kueper and his graduate students make use of high resolution numerical simulation using multiphase flow/reactive transport models, laboratory experimentation, and field experimentation in carrying out their research.
