The Bureau has a vast array of capabilities for the study of groundwater contaminants. These include basic services, such as environmental drilling, monitoring well installation, soil-probe hydrocarbon vapor surveys, characterization of environmental and geologic media, and field and remote data monitoring. Scientists apply their research skills in hydrogeology and environmental geophysics to groundwater salinization, crude-oil and natural gas plumes, cross-formational leakage along well bores, and drilling fluid disposal site characteristics.
