Lithochimeia Presents 2011 Poster on Lake Tenkiller Sediment Contamination

Roger Olsen (CDM), Bert Fisher and Fred Soster (DePauw University) presented a poster at the 6th International Conference on Remediation of Contaminated Sediments 
demonstrating the use of principal components analysis and sediment geochronology to demonstrate the relationship between the chemistry of Lake Tenkiller sediments and the history of poultry waste disposal within the Illinois River Waterhshed.

Lithochimeia Presents Study of Poultry Waste Marker Constituents in Edge of Field Runoff within the Illinois River Watershed at the 2010 Governor's Water Conference and Oklahoma Water Research Symposium in Norman, OK.

Bert Fisher presented a research paper concerning the inorganic chemical markers in poultry waste and how the presence and relative abundance of those markers link the chemistry of water running off poultry waste applied fields to poultry waste and poultry waste contaminated soil

Lithochimea Presents Case Studies at 2010 International Petroleum & Biofuels Environmental Conference in San Antonio, TX.

Bert Fisher and Kerry Sublette presented a series of case studies illustrating the use of various techniques to characterize the vadose zone migration of oilfield brine contamination at the 17th Annual International Petroleum & Biofuels Environmental Conference.  The paper demonstrated the use of visual observations, geophysical measurements and the chemistry of soil samples in determining the source and extent of oilfield brine contamination at real-world sites in Oklahoma and Kansas.
