Abstract : This report provides a description of the work done at Auburn University for the research project 'Subsurface Transport of Hydrocarbon Fuel additives and a Chlorinated Solvent', supported by Armstrong Laboratory, Headquarters Air Force Civil Engineering Support Agency, Environics Directorate, under contract F08635-93-C-0071. The project is focused on the subsurface environmental behavior of quadricyclane, which is a light nonaqueous phase liquid (LNAPL) cyclic hydrocarbon fuel additive, and on the behavior of tetrachloroethylene (or perchloroethylene), which is a dense nonaqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) chlorinated hydrocarbon solvent.
