Since the mid 1980s, Dr. Connors has investigated environmental contamination sources, transport, and fate. His work has involved an extremely wide variety of chemicals, contaminated media (surficial soil and sediment, vadose zone, confined and unconfined aquifers, and surface waters), and contaminant phases (NAPLs, dissolved phase, vapors, etc.). He has worked on contamination projects and legal cases involving landfills, pipelines, above- and under-ground storage tanks, rail yards, refineries, wetlands, chemical and manufacturing plants, oil and gas fields, military bases, automobile dealerships, casinos, agriculture and aquaculture facilities, and many other sites. His work has involved well installation and sampling, computer modeling, statistical analysis, plume stability evaluations, biological contamination and sampling, data review and validation, applications of geophysical methods, contamination forensics, and risk-based remediation.
